Re: Spring?

Yes, your weather does sound terrible, too.  Too bad about the
tree limb.  At least you have a garden started.  I have some
tomatoes and basil started indoors under lights, but the peas,
lettuce and radishes I planted on the one good day about a
week ago have not come up yet.  
When I hear about all the terrible storms in the South and 
midwest, I tell myself not to complain about a flooded basement.
But again, we only have had that once about every seven or
eight years in the 40 years we have lived here - until this year.
This morning I found water in the downstairs rooms for the third
time this spring.  
Oh well, today looks as if it might be sunny, even if it's not
predicted to be out of the 50s.  I'm more than ready for spring.

As much as I hate cold weather, I'd almost relish yours rather than ours. 
While we've had many lovely days in the 70's. we've also had many in the 
80's followed by tornado warnings and nasty winds with hail. The latest 
victims (last night) are our fence and the neighbor's pickup truck which 
were clobbered by an enormous poplar limb, and the spinach and lettuce I 
planning to have for dinner tonight, which were crushed by the hail.

I"m also getting really, really tired of carrying 300+ tomato plants in and 
out. There are a total of about 100 peppers and eggplant, too.
