I lused to ove it when it snowed in Fayetteville.I would hang out at my mom's place near the pool at Wilson Park and watch the idiots slide down the hill.
1000s of snow geese flying over Boston Mountains today headed for the delta. Somethings on it's way. Everybody is over busting on the Texican for the "Petrino to Texas" thread and doesn't recognize impending doom. I'll have all the region's vienna sausage in my pantry before they realize it.
Better tell them geese not to land in Burns Park.
Snow Geese don't play no golf.
Neither did Steve Martone but that didn't stop him from going there to putt from the rough.
Resonance...metal folding chairs or hard tile floors cannot be beaten when it comes to firing off a loud fart.
Who nicknamed her "the hill?"
The little girl taking in some sledding after the 18 incher last winter in the Ville
18 inches is better than 18 below. (As in -18 degrees)Not that they're mutually exclusive around here.
This last winter and then summer has cost me lots of money in replacing large landscape specimens. I was set back 200 bucks for a 7 ft dwarf norway spruce which is basically a mature one. Nadinas and crepe myrtles don't take -18 degrees well at all. Kill them back to the ground but the did come back.
To top it off, I have about 12 dump trucks full of river gravel now in the middle of my yard that filled up what used to be a dry riverbed. This weather aMm has really hit me hard.
Snow adds nitrogen to your soil. Something about snowflake molecular structure grabbing N from the air as it forms. Poor man's fertilizer.Rowcroppers up north actually till it in after a moderate snowfall. At least they did before $4 diesel.Got all my prestorm aMm done. Time to sit around the fire, drink red beer and watch football.
Dan Skoff WeatherDan2 to 4" snow range for NWA is a good forecast w/ much more in NW Benton Co. Compare the past few models runs. #arwx http://t.co/sPTtR9sWCome on shift south about 30 miles. If it's going to snow, I want my inconvience to be worth it.
They may very well till it in but they're wasting fuel at any price. The "grabbing N" part just doesn't happen. O and H can't bond with N when a snow flake is forming on the way down. The chemistry just doesn't work that way.
It's a *little* more complicated than that. Snow & rain both "trap" nitrogen - that is, charged nitrogen-containing compounds like nitrates. It doesn't form new compounds with elemental nitrogen itself (unless there's lightning involved). Elemental nitrogen (N2) is absolutely useless to living organisms. You need nitrogen "fixed" into forms like nitrate for it to be useful. Lightning does that, as do certain bacteria in the roots of certain plants.So yes, snow & rain do contribute nitrogen-containing compounds to your soil. I can't imagine that it's a great amount, certainly not compared to fertilizer, but it couldn't hurt, I guess. I also don't know why snow would be considered better than rain, in that regard. Maybe it sits there longer so there's more time for it to be absorbed by soil microbes before it runs off?
So, do you not get N with snow?Everybody from extension to old-timers say you do. I just accepted it as true.
