    Feb 6-7 icing

    Oh most definitely, even at 770 feet a few miles away didn't have any icing like you did. Gotta love the micro-climates we have in our area sometimes.

    The pic doesn't do it justice but it was nuts, lightening up a bit now.

    Absolutely dumping snow and roaring wind here in Tolland right now.

    There's definitely a battle going on. Just finished my cleanup and when I went out, Tolland High (closest WU station on my hill) was approaching 33, now back below 32. It's going to be interesting around here.

    Moderate zr here since I've been up for the past hour or so. Everything has a shine to it now and small branches showing that they're holding weight. If we hold on to this it'll definitely be interesting.

    9th annual Lawn Thread 2018

    Well after having the spindles on my mower rebuilt, (it used to sound like I was mowing marbles) I decided to sand and paint the machine (OCD). Mows great and the yard is looking pretty good. The clover definitely got knocked down this year between the pre and post emergent fert. I think my routine will be heavy weed and feed in the spring and core aerating and overseeding in the fall. In 3 years my lawn went from sparse old neglected grass that barely grew to this.
  10. I saw and got a couple of decent pics of 2 bald eagles at a pond of the Willimantic tic River in Tolland this morning.
  11. I just got home and heard peepers in the woods with snow covered ground. Now that's a first for me.

    9th annual Lawn Thread 2018

    When I bought my house in 2014 I saw how my yard had potential but it was also neglected for many years. The previous that lived here since the 60's actually had their daughter go missing (fairly well-known case around here) and from what I hear they weren't super motivated to maintain things outside. Since moving in I've raked the yard out every spring, cut back trees overhanging the yard, lesco, core aerated, and overseeded every year. So things are getting much better. No more crabgrass and the grass is thick enough to give my commercial mower some challenges in spots. This year it's a war on clover and this other weed that has really broad leaves and deep roots, the name escapes me right now. Once I get things where I like them I'll do my spring cleanups with the backpack. Right now raking helps dethatch more aggressively.

    It's coming down moderately in Willington now. My cameras show it coming down good at home too. Game on...
