Re: weather

It was in the upper 70s yesterday and today it's in the lower 70s. Not surprisingly, we are under a tornado watch until 4:00 this afternoon. I noaticed today that the flowering quince is blooming, which it normally does this time of the year. I've also got Vinca major blooming, which is not normal. My poor plants are going to be as confused as they were last year I fear. I'm just hoping we don't have another killing freeze in mid-April!

well now.... figured I should add to the discussion since here it also is unusal weather mode.

I live 40 miles south of Chicago, so it is zone 5, this is January... it supposed to be cold and icy and all that stuff.

Well today it was 71 according to my car. Officially Chicago weather is
at the airport, 60 miles north of me... and that hit the hotest weather
since they have been recording ....at 65.

Now, we are in a thunderstorm (yes, here in Illinois - in January!) and
unfortuately, much farther north near the Wisconsin border, tornadoes
have hit.

My poor plants!.... just a few days ago the temp was minus 2 with a wind
chill of minus 12 and ten inches of snow on the ground.... and by the
end of the week - er a couple of days, the high will only be in the

Sigh, ... just who pissed off ma nature cause everywhere is strange weather.
