Re: OT- weather

Hi Arnold,
Good to see you are back on the iris talk.  Wild weather this year for us, unusally cold as you can probably tell.  The snowfall we got in that picture was 7", very wet with about 2.5" of water in it.  Right now it is sunny and mild with the highs at about 65.  The iris have really started to grow and we have several median stalks coming!  I am dusting off my hybridizing equipment and getting ready! 
Talk to you later

Mike:  I got a kick out of the picture of snow in California.  We are in the midst of a blizzard here in NW Iowa as I write, supposed to be 6" or so.  Well, it is the best mulch one can get, and you know there is natural fertilizer in it, too, nitrates out of the air.  So maybe you'll have the greatest garden year ever because of the snow!  Best Wishes!!!!
