    Winter 2018-19 Is Coming

    You wouldn't have made it through the 70's. It was a pretty horrible stretch up until 79's PD1 blizzard. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/capital-weather-gang/wp/2015/02/16/how-the-surprise-presidents-day-snowstorm-of-1979-advanced-the-science-of-forecasting/?utm_term=.cbc261c70b04 The only saving grace for me during this period was the fact I was to young to realize how bad it was and that there was no internet to research the numbers. It was only after the 79 storm that I began to realize that I had been missing out on my snow most of my childhood and teenage years.

    Winter 2018-19 Is Coming

    Was just looking at it this morning thinking things were looking up. Thought about posting something about it but still pretty early and have seen things go in the crapper too often to have a great deal of confidence. Fingers crossed though on my end that we see a semblance of this in 2 months or so.

    2018 Mid Atlantic Lawn/Garden/Pool Thread

    Found that the best time to try for me to plant new seed is later in the summer, past peak heat. Gives the new grass time to establish a decent and deeper root system through the fall and the following spring before it has to withstand the hot dry spells through mid summer. Though you may have to initially water it everyday you can phase that back as the heat and the direct sun decrease. Planting during the late fall or early spring almost always was a losing proposition with me. Though it would look great in the spring it quickly died off heading into summer even with daily watering as the root system just was not up to the task. About the only way I could sustain it was with watering twice a day and who really has time for that.

    You can PM and gloat if you like. Won't bother me any. Well, maybe just a little.

    Way to rub it in. I assume you are just practicing for this winter when you come down and troll us with your 5+ feet of snow?

    @Jebman After years and years of reading about your Jebwalks it just won't be the same in here without you. Hoping the best for you and yours down in Texas.

    That's just wrong. Funny, but still wrong. eta: And 007 can find his own way down. That turncoat.

    Like the early fall idea myself. Temps should hopefully be somewhat cooler and we can argue over how much snow we are going to get. Already got my money on 150% over average for this winter.
