OT:Snow Report

I woke  up a couple of times during the night to water dripping off my roof.  
 Well, there is this spot near my head.  This gave me the impression that  
the snow had turned to rain!  Not!  
It is still snowing hard, and coming in from an angle now.  Relatively  
little snow on my front deck/porch which indicates it came down gentle and  
straight during the night.  But why the dripping?  The temperature  didn't drop below 
32 degrees!  (still is)  My roof is well insulated  but it appears the small 
amount of heat loss was enough to keep some of the snow  melting.  Drip!  
Drip!  Drip!  I don't think I've seen this  happen before! 
The irises are well covered with the white mulch.  Good snow cover on  the 
straw that covers my seed pots.  The bail of straw/hay looked very much  the 
worse for wear and I thought it was spoiled or weathered.  However, I'm  getting 
nice green sprouts over the top of the mulch and the weather doesn't  seem to 
bother it.  A little added entertainment to brighten the  days.  

If you  don't cross them, you can't  plant them!
