Re: weather


just how cold did it get in 'crop' country?... what crop are we talking about
since Calif has a few that I can think of...

And while we are talking
California... anyone heard from David recently?  I sure hope his greenhouses
have the option to turn on heat...

Pam did you stay home? Looks like you are
getting hit again.....

Yesterday was the first snow fall of the year for me
and heard something about the first time winter season with 44 days of no snow
or somekinda record we set.  Interesting year to say the least- wonder how
many plants I am going to loose over this.  We have had plenty of rain, as
they also claimed we would have had feet of snow if it was in that state....
Donna- where it is getting cold ... 13 for a low tonight, which really isn't
bad for here....

Interesting--I though those
prototype smog machines had gone away. If 
they only lose the crop, the
crop-insurance cavalry will ride to their 
rescue; but if they lose the trees,
too, man that's a whole different 
thing.
