Spring is buried under some late snow here in the Northeast, but soon suburbia landscapes will spring up in all their colors.

Put an end to the debate as to whose grass is greener by certified, pixel based satellite image analysis, visible as a score right there on Google Maps (or Zillow)

       Seeding the clouds with copper sulphate would get you green snow, would that be an improvement?

       The only problem with this idea is that my groundsmen have instructions to shoot down any overflying satellites.

       Doesn't that play hob with your GPS?

       Not really. I have a Head of Navigation, who follows me around with a sextant.

       What about at night? - and why a sextant rather than an octant?

       Could also use a nonant, or a tenant.

       What colour profile would be the standard for this ? Many colour profiles don't do greens very well including typical sRGB monitor space. Even when you show people the greenest of green lawns they might have a crappy display and see other lawns as better.

       Display it in RTTY art.

       We'll start with only having judges that spell it color :)   

       But of course this talks about greenness, not other aesthetics.

       I would have bunned it just for the phrase   

       //Spring is buried under some late snow//

       /I have a Head of Navigation/. Does he just pitch the sextent whenever you have the urge?

       People with grass houses shouldn't.
