I love cold, and am disappointed in the mild temperatures where I live. Have nothing against Spring, but the thought of heat and humidity makes me want to move to central Alaska, or northern Canada!

Our ice finally melted this afternoon. I don't particularly like extreme cold, but I hate ice. It makes me want to go to bed until spring comes.

We're finally coming out of our cold snap. It's been in the teens at
night and the 40s-50s during the day for a week and a half. I had a
major brain malfunction last Sunday, I forgot to turn the little
electric heater in the greenhouse back on after I watered. This morning before we left for work it suddenly hit me and I dashed out there - I couldn't see too much because it wasn't sunup yet but it looks like I lost the big croton and two of the coleus I've been overwintering for a couple years, and at least the top part of the canna got frosted. Good
thing I don't have anything in there I can't afford to lose.
No rain to speak of yet either. It's so dry I get shocked with static several times a day. Yesterday I dumped my leftover coffee on the dirt and it just beaded up for a while instead of sinking in. My hopes for a good wildflower season are fading; but there's still time for things to
turn around.
