    STORY CITY, Iowa A Story County man was not about to let a little May snow keep him from his yard work.

    Roland city mayor Roger Fritz shared a video on YouTube showing him mowing his lawn. He put on shorts and a T-shirt for the effort.

    "It was May 2, and I decided the grass needed cut," Fritz said

    The video went viral, but it's not the first time some Mayor Fritz shenanigans have made it to the web.

    "I made a video on Christmas 2011, where it got to 65 that day," he said. "So I went and mowed the grass just so I could on Christmas Day."

    Fritz said cutting grass on May 2 when it snows is more interesting than cutting grass on Christmas Day.
