I would give a large sum of cash to see the SUN here.  We are living in a
cloud and have been for weeks.  I saw sun last Friday for 20 minutes, and
can't recall when before that.  You'd think I lived in San Francisco with
all the all-day fog we've had.
The first batch of winter crop seeds/plants all froze before Xmas, when it
went down to 22 for several nights.  So we are starting over again and hope
eventually to get some veggies!!
