White Feathery Substance on Grass Blades

Anonymous added on August 20, 2011 | Answered

I found a white feathery substance on our lawn this morning. Looking at several neighbors' yards, I see that they have it also. I have never seen it before. The blades seem to be dying from the top down. It is not all over the yard, only in patches and some are quite extensive. Is it dangerous for the lawn? Please offer a solution.
