Glad you didn't get dumped on!  That is very funny about the staged snow
scene though. Hard to fathom,  we've seen so many pictures of back east it's
hard to believe there weren't real places to dramatize!
Here the big thing is the cop-killer fugitive. I don't live close to any of
that action but I know lots of people who do. Our volunteer organization was
shut down for a while because they were using the ranger station for staging
the search/SWAT teams.  Sure hope no one else gets hurt. The police have
been so on edge they've turned two pickups into swiss cheese, fortunately
the innocent people in them are going to live. Can't believe the number of
bullet holes in everything else around though. I'm wondering what would life
be like if the NRA's dream comes true and everyone is armed...since the
highly-trained police cannot apparently contain themselves to ascertain who
they're shooting at, how do we expect regular citizens to handle themselves
in a scary situation? It's insanity. 
We had cold weather Friday - great hopes for precipitation dashed once again
- I think it rained once for a few minutes, and hailed for about 45 seconds
two or three times during the day.  I've decided we have the reverse of the
car-washing phenomenon. You know, you go get your car washed so it rains?
Well here we all want it to rain.  But when it starts Jim runs out to put
the horses in their stalls and as soon as they're all put up, the rain
stops. I've decided next time they'll just have to get wet.

I don't know how my poor plants will figure out what to do.
After a spell of mild weather without even freezing at night, we had a week
of pretty cold stuff, not out of the twenties during the day and down into
the teens at night - and with no snow cover.  That worried me because
Hellebores were budding and the quince was showing color.  Then we had the
big snow storm - got about a foot here, and the temperature dropped to the
single digits yesterday morning.  At least there was snow to protect plants.
But this morning we woke up to drizzly rain, and today has been in the 40s.
What a mess.
But here's what I wanted to tell you  I know the media reported record snows
in the Northeast.  My friend's son who lives in Hartford, CT called to tell
her that if she watched the news she  would see his street and his pick-up
truck.  He said the TV crews had brought in truckloads of snow and staged
the scene.  
Yes, this was the most snow we have had this year, but we have had many
heavier snows in past years.  This one just had more  entertainment value
for some reason.
