In North Dakota the grass has a white substance covering it at the moment.

Not as depressing as Gray dead looking trees stripped of all their leaves from Oct to April as we have here in upstate N.Y. for winter.

We can't see brown or green grass for much of winter as its covered with snow, but the dead trees poke through all the snow...

I actually love bare trees. I don't like broadleaf trees that stay green all year, the exception being the Southern live oak like you see in the Deep South, as those are beautiful. But I think the plateau live oak like you see in Texas and Oklahoma is butt ugly with a dull green to boot. I love the look of bare branches from late fall to mid spring. Maybe that's the macabre/goth in me

Frost or snow? We got refrozen slushy patches of snow on sidewalks and dirt, but none on the grass.

The grass here in east TN is still mostly green with patches of brown. It has basically stopped growing.

Nope, the grass stays green here over the winter - although if you don't water, it's brown at the end of summer.

This has been an odd fall, it's already mid November and all the trees on our block in Chicago are still full of green leaves, nothing is turning yet.

Until that first freeze a few days ago when I looked out my window on November 9th and it was sunny out it still looked like July with the lush green trees and all my summer plants still in full bloom.

It's the same here, lots of trees with full leaf canopy and quite a few trees are still fully green. Pretty unusual for mid November here!

I would much rather see this, instead of ugly dead grass everywhere. I enjoy the snow, which is non-existent here
