Re: [nafex] Old Saying


     There is fertility value of snow.  I think there is some documentation on n.  However, given the collective pollution content (varies
with area of course) there is certainly more of some types.  Also, the slow release (melt) helps soil asorption, I would guess

     Just a thought.

Ed, So. Indiana, heaven, sprintime, lilac orders, etc.
