    If I remember correctly, 2009/2010 had a winter storm way late in the year due to the Negative NAO.. So not impossible,

    Sod will need way too much sun. You are likely to need to go with finer fescue like creeping red or others. May want to listen to this. https://ext.vt.edu/lawn-garden/turfandgardentips/tips/turfgrass-varieties-mid-atlantic-lawns-2008.html# Also, some peat and dried and treated manure can do great for fertilizer alternatives. Corn gluten meal can deter weeds once you have a good lawn(not before) and I recommend compost as well. Aerate in the fall, and overseed again then. Fall is the best time to plant! One potential challenge will be fungus and I do not know how to keep that away other than chemicals which I would steer clear of with dogs. Even natural treatments for fungus can be a problem. Weeding is something I would do by hand or just work with after the lawn is doing well. Because it is shaded you may want to test the ph level as well. if you do go with thicker fescue, mow as high as you are comfortable with, but at least 3 inches . For bugs I like permethrin, but use carefully

    You sound like me! Here in Loudoun County, as I barely squeaked past 3 inches. Although today makes me think I measured a bit low or that compaction was my issue and I need to be wiping off the measurement board I was using. Still, this was not the 6"+ most reported right near me!

    I must have made the snow gods angry! After careful re-measuring, I seriously barely broke 3 inches today! It was a sad day! I lived in a snow hole 90% of the day after this morning. Temps warmed above freezing before noon and stayed that way (actually still 33 after a high of 35) .. I almost saw the sun for a while. This barely outdid the snow I had Presidents day weekend! NOW within a mile or so of my home, there are measurements between 4 and 6 inches. I was unlucky! I see some other low spots in Loudoun as well from random feedback from Facebook! I need redemption! TREND SATURDAY MY WAY please and make it way overperform! Regardless, it is snowball fight and sledding time!

    just about 2.5 inches out here. Lighter stuff too. JUST north of me and all of Maryland and then east continues in heavy stuff... FRINGED! LOL! @psuhoffman you must be dancing in the snow! It came your way! Can't win them all.. and for 2+ years now .. we can't win out here!
  14. March 20/21 STORM Obs/Discussion- No Banter

    Just hit 2 inches.
  15. March 20/21 STORM Obs/Discussion- No Banter

    @leesburg 04 that is a nice band! Wow! Quickly added up almost another half inch .. very close to 1 inch now.. if it could stay at that rate I would see 1inch plus per hour! Best snow of the season and looking good! Just need almost 3 inches to break the highest snow of the season. 29 degrees with heavy snow!
