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.

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.

I've lost two 70 year + ornamental cedars, a dwarf spruce and a few other hedges and aMm the last few years.  Cold kilt all the elephant ears, too.  Drought + cold = ugly yard.

These last two years have left me with every major Sycamore tree around my house either dead or almost there.  My home is surrounded by them so it's a bit of a safety issue that I'm going to have to address pretty soon. 

My weeping willow tree died.  Most of my evergreens and my magnolia tree have been topped off from the ice storm.  One of my two Japanese Maples froze and died. 

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.

Creek gravel goes for $150/load.  There's $1800 towards your tree work and new landscape.

Well, I'm going to eventually pay a guy with a front end loader to move it all around for me and build a new concrete back porch and such on top of it.

Still, what a pain in the ass.

‎2 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/sPTtR9sW


Come on shift south about 30 miles. If it's going to snow, I want my inconvience to be worth it.

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.

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.

So, do you not get N with snow?

Everybody from extension to old-timers say you do.  I just accepted it as true.

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?

Makes sense to me.  And you're right, it's not a whole lot and you still need to apply N-P-K.  But it's fun to think you're getting something for free.
