CENTRAL ILLINOIS -- People took advantage of Thursday's warm weather to get out and start cleaning up their yards. Some found an unwanted visitor: snow mold. The fungus gets its name because it thrives underneath snow.

With all the snow this winter, it means there's more of it. The good news is it doesn't hurt your lawn. There's a simple fix; just rake it up. Even though it won't hurt your grass or plants, you'll still want to take care of it. It could cause problems for anyone allergic to mold.
