Lawn Stripes in the Snow!

Post by ken-n-nancy » October 31st, 2020, 11:35 pm

Today, I observed a phenomenon I don't recall ever having seen before...

As yesterday's snow started melting in the sun and the 45F temperatures, stripes from the wheel tracks of my recent mowings started to appear in the snow! Honestly, there wasn't any new "striping" on the lawn after the snow -- the "stripes" are due to the snow settling and melting differently in the places where the wheel tracks were during the last couple mowings.

Just had to share...
