    Nah it’s not a typical colour at all. Not for my location.

    Don’t insult my intelligence Pad. That’s not true, I live here and so know what the normal colour is. Otherwise I wouldn't have raised it.

    I wonder will there be a thread created for next Tue/Wed potential wind and rain event?

    Would be a welcome change from my grass isn't green debate.

    The winter just gone (but arguably still in full swing) was weighted more toward cold days than mild, so no doubt this had an effect on grass colour in some spots. Though I have to say, the grass colour in the pics posted above looks pretty typical for exposed regions in the winter.

    Really not sure how some are getting to cut their lawns etc at this point in the year. Grass around here shows no sign of growth at all, and despite the ongoing current dry spell, drying itself has been very poor throughout. Soil is still as squelchy as ever. No sun either today for the 4th day in a row. Typically, this sort of pattern would bring ample sun to Connacht, but not this time around it seems, but I'm not complaining. Dry, cloudy, hazy weather has it's own charm.

    I have noticed the anticyclones this year have been unusually cloudy. Ground is dry here, haven’t cut grass in weeks either.

    I can't cut the grass here. The ground is still to wet.
    Crap cold day. Wind is icy. Not seen the Sun for over a week.

    Grass in upland areas is brown here as well but moorland is always brown at this time of year so can't say I've taken much notice of it

    And agreed on cutting the lawn, always find it bizarre seeing people talking about getting the lawnmower out in Jan and Feb, I usually don't cut it at all between October & April and its always perfectly fine

    lovely day in Meath after a very cold and frosty night. Feels mild in the sunshine and very little wind.

    Overcast in Donegal again as well, don't think I've seen the sun once in the past week


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,912 ✭✭✭ appledrop


    In the park today and great to see it bone dry.

    All the muck has dried up as no rain here for a week.

    Finally we are not covered in muck when we come home


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,449 ✭✭✭ SleetAndSnow


    Went for a walk around the Lee Fields in Cork today. Was still totally flooded a few days ago, and today bar one or two puddles in the grass you wouldn't even have noticed it was flooded. lovely day

    MT is predicting a warmish Paddy’s day. Hope so as I am booking the 18th & 19th off.


  • Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators Posts: 15,567 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Gonzo


    One of the best days of the year so far in Meath, unbroken gin blue skies and mild sunshine. Lots of people walking and cycling and the sound of lawnmowers.

    Raining steadily here past three hours in Donegal, strange to see the rain back we have been spoilt

    Posts like this make me realise how big our small island is. Absolute rasper of a day in Dublin.

    Fab day in South Wicklow. Nice to be putting sun cream on the kids and drinking coffee sitting out the back all day.
