RE: weather


That's encouraging. Mine do have that freeze-dried look, but I have seen
a lot of them around here that don't look bad, so I wasn't optimistic.
If it comes back, that will be great, and if it doesn't maybe I'll go
knocking on doors and see if I can't beg a piece. Just has to be the
spineless kind.

I think the cacti here are opuntia. Mine looked dead after we went from
70s to -10F overnight one fall. Everything was flat dessicated, looked
like a total loss, but it came back. Lost about half its bulk, but I was
surprized how much of the part that looked freeze-dried, survived.
