Here in the Pacific NW in the Valley it's unusual to get snow at all in the winter. This year we have had snow several times. It is supposed to snow/ice pellets on the valley floor this weekend! husband and I planted grass seed four weekends ago before we went to Mexico thinking that all the bare spots from the dogs would be sprouting by the time we got back. Nope. We've got muddy bare spots with seeds in it now. What the heck?
