Roland, IA - Snow can certainly put a damper on your thoughts of Spring, but the mayor of Roland, Iowa, isn't about to let a little thing like the weather keep him from his yard work.
Next time the weather gets you down, ask yourself, what would Mayor Fritz do?
"Well, I was getting ready to go to work and it was snowing, and I thought, 'oh, man. It's May. I'm gonna do something stupid, just for fun, for something to remember."
And that's all it took before his wife became an unwitting accomplice.
"He said, 'I want you to take a video of me mowing the grass,' and I looked at him like, 'I am not doing that. It is cold. It's snowing out. I'm not gonna do that.'"
But she did it anyway.
"She's used to my shenanigans, so she's a good sport and did that for me."
Much to the delight of the internet audience. The video went viral. But it's not the first time some Mayor Fritz shenanigans have made it to the web.
"Made a video on Christmas 2011, where it got up to 65F that day, and I went out and mowed the grass just so I could on Christmas day."
But that one just wasn't as good.
"Apparently, cutting grass on May 2 in the snow is more interesting than cutting grass on Christmas when it's 65."
With or without an audience, the grass is always greener in Roland.
So be on the lookout for his next video -- that is, if his lawn mower survives.
"Hopefully, it will hang in there and not rust out with all the snow that was on top of it, so we'll cross our fingers and hope next week, when it gets up in the 70s, we'll be good to go."
