Western Mass. has been busy digging out - there's still snow in the driveway,
now being rained upon by some of that moisture Rick Tasco sent us. This
last storm was the heaviest load of snow I've ever seen - a 35+ year old
rhododendron has snapped several of its branches, and a lilac that we've had
since 1955 has been severely pruned by Mom Nature! In addition, several maples
have bad damage, including some 6-inch dia. branches! With apologies to those
of us who have trouble converting metric to imperial (if that's the name of
the system we use), and don't want to get any practice, here in Western MA
we had well over a cubit and a half <g>.

Haven't ever seen a rhizome split from either the cold or the wet, despite
below 0 fahrenheit for a week at a time. No-one seemed to reply to the
I have forgotten who asked it.

Yesterday's high 3.6 celsius, low -1.8, now with plain rain, but freezing
the low spots and the hills nearby.
