What a difference a year makes

A year ago, on March 24, I completed our lawn's first mowing of the season and felt like summer had arrived early.  This year, on March 24, we received 8 inches of snow.  I'm confident summer has not arrived yet.

This photo was taken after two days of melting and it should be obvious that the grass is a long way from its first cutting this season.  In fact, the grass is looking as dormant as it was in January.

On the bright side, the spring yard work looks like it can wait for a few more days.
