Rare Rain Event...

This past weekend on 12/17 we experienced a very rare event in Colorado during the winter, RAIN! For a couple days, temperatures reached in the 50's and significant rainfall occurred. Then as a cold front moved in, temperatures dropped and the changeover to snow resulted in a foot of wet, Eastern Style snow accumulation. These conditions are not ideal for golf course turf, especially this early in the winter season. Ice formation on turf for long durations is potentially one of the most dangerous conditions golf turf can experience. Time will tell?

A few hours later, snowing....with an eventual foot of accumulation.
