Re: OT - weather

Ellen:  My sympathies for your situation of not-yet-visible iris 
would be even greater if we had not been enjoying early spring only 
to have a return blast of January ourselves, winds NW at upwards of 
40MPH at times, temperature that fell to record low for the date of 
10 (TEN!!!!) last night, with repeat expected tonight.  Crocus that 
were beautifully in bloom aren't, and effect on potential 
daffodil/tulip bloom is anybody's guess.  Ditto iris.  The iris were 
looking so good, virtually no winter loss (we had heavy snow cover), 
and now this.  I'm holding my breath. :-(
