It's Aliiiiive

Only been under ice for about 40 days now, but this is sure nice to see.  Last winter I pulled a few plugs out of a green and put them in the windowsill, and they kind of halfway greened up, and it took them a week or two.  These samples are already fully greened up and ready to be mowed after 5 days in my windowsill greenhouse.

However, if the best case scenario brings us an early thaw by mid-march we still have about 20 days under the ice, worst case scenario brings us a late thaw and we could have 40+ more days under ice.  The Poa is just starting to enter its danger zone, so we aren't quite out of the woods yet.  Still hoping for some relatively nice weather soon to at least get the snow and ice cleared off of 16 green.
