Re: "Don't mess with Mother Nature?"
Thursday night and yesterday, received the second 1 to 2 inch snow fall in the past week. This one seems to be sticking so far. Late summer and fall were very wet. Pulled mud up from the lawn in places, soil condition is more like April than November. I don't know what all this means for winter. I recall some past years of early snow/cold resulting in very mild winters. Then too, some years, the snows just stayed through April. I'm northwest of Detroit.
