Well after 2 smaller snows and some rain I can say that I am sleeping a little bit better than I was a couple of weeks ago.
I attended the State of Iowa Turfgrass Conference last week and there were a lot of superintendents talking about the lack of precipitation and that they too were out watering some dry grass.
Since then we have had 2 precipitation events and there is some adequate moisture around the crown of the plant and we should be out of the woods for now. That doesn’t mean that we still wouldn’t see some desiccation in some areas and you never know what February will bring to us.
Here is a photo taken out of my office window this morning. I like seeing the white stuff on the ground!
