    9th annual Lawn Thread 2018

    Looks good, but most lawns look really green mid Oct I would think, I don't consider mid Oct very late in the season lawn wise, even with a non torch fall. Now, 2015 I consider this late --this was Xmas morning in VT, we pray that never happens again..ha

    Was out earlier this AM-mostly rain here up to about 2400ft, then some really light snow at that elevation, no accumulation that I can see, but VIS is really low above that level.

    Fall Foliage 2018

    Judging by what I can see through the low clouds/mist, looks like a good amount of reds popping down here. Looking at forecast Sat-Monday for Columbus day weekend, should be a leaf peeper bonanza with weather looking nice and color should be really getting closer to peak or at least really good color by then.

    Highest in CT is 29.32" on cocorahs since 7/1. Obviously there could be areas above that are not covered by spotters, but FWIW. Edit: to add on the other states(cocorahs only): MA: 31.88" Plainfield RI: 20.09" Harrisville VT: 27.02" Wilmington NH: 25.84" Mason ME: 17.80" Parsonsfield

    You can find spots in CNE that average 60-65" per year, but also areas that average 130-150", so you could find your non overkill snow spot. Don't think you can avoid the cold though, it doesn't discriminate as much.(Maybe Coastal NH) I've hit at least -20F every year since moving here(S VT) 5 years ago. Here is a pic from one of our NE posters in SVT last March....this might be considered overkill...lol As someone who moved from Chester County to VT, I can concur on those accounts. Love the weather and lifestyle here- summers are awesome(except this one which was even humid and warm here) Jobs are tough here in SVT ( I work remotely) But S NH has more opportunities with Concord and Manchester and somewhat closer commute to Boston.

    Missed this post. Not sure if you did reseed, but I would see if it comes back with the cooler weather. Still bad?

    Going to miss your drone shots for sure. Good luck down there.

    Agree, should get some lime down with ph that low. I don't think there is an issue with doing seed at the same time if that's what you want to do. Even the best grass seed cultivars wont reach their full potential if the soil isn't adequate, so getting the soil optimum is definitely important in getting the the grass to thrive.

    Pretty meh here...just .68" Enough to soak in the fall fert app and keep grass happy. Contrary to what some opine on here, most people I know are ready for the dews to break. Looking forward to some normal late Sept temps, going to feel great. It will actually feel like fall this weekend for some of the local festival stuff.

    Love those undercast shots, always some of my favorite from the PF portfolio.

    It definitely could be a fungus. If you were watering alot(which im guessing you were with the lack of rain in SEMA this summer?), then the water and the insane dews this summer are a perfect recipe for disease/fungus-also any summer fert would also enhance fungus. Like SJones said, sun wouldn't do that damage if you were irrigating frequently. Does seem like some disease/fungus. .

    Yea, pretty intense here as well which is normally the case in these setups. Debris everywhere in the roads, like a slalom course driving home in the dark. A 30ft weakened maple got uprooted and is leaning on the power lines at neighbors right now, power still on....for now. Advisory probably warranted, at least for the usual downslope suspects.

    As Jspin and PF, its all relative. It is somewhat of snowhole considering within 10-15 miles snowfall can be much higher places east. But being near the Canadian border, average is bound to be higher. Retention is pretty poor(again relative to surrounding areas), 33" is the highest ever recorded depth at BTV (records back to 1895). Retention is bad up and down VT west of the Green Mountains as its so easy to get a torch on Sw/S winds.

    I did a stop at the Grand Canyon skywalk in '09 when I drove from the west coast to east coast. Definitely pretty cool. Pictures definitely don't do the Grand Canyon justice compared to in person IMO.

    Pretty sad story. Any "plane" where you can stick a selfie stick out and take a pic is a no go for me... Also, not a fan of those sightseeing planes, and helicopters--seem like you are always hearing about those going down somewhere. Im sure if you look at the data, its probably safer than driving in a car everyday, but just not for me. I guess Im risk averse..lol
