Re: OT - weather

Dear Mike,
I am surprised abou the loss of the olives.  I had imagined that very ancient tree to be a very hardy one.
All I could see at first of my iris here was their markers! I imagine it did them a great deal of good to have a nice snow.  Last year they took the tremendous El Nino rains which caused so much flooding up here, with grace, so I expect everything of them. ( I do have very good drainage here)
A snow plow is anything which can go over the road and clear off snow so people can drive.  You probably don't have them in the Valley since snow on the Valley floor is so rare.  We use road graders up here -- they just go along with the blade and move the snow aside.  They did finally come by the day of the storm and the roads were clear by evening.
Carry on!

Hi Julia, 
We lost some olive trees down here.  The citrus are a little more sturdy so they didn't break.  I couldn't see an iris anywhere.  After inspection today they look fine and all are still green but everything is very, very wet.  BTW what is a snow plow? :-))

Dear Mike,
Bakersfield reported 4" of snow overnight and that some palm trees were toppling as a result. Here in the lower Sierra Nevada we had about 9" at 3300 ft. by 7:00AM which had grown to be a foot by 10:00M and still snowing. Nothing moving and certainly not any snow plows.
Was wondering how this storm hit at Porterville.Amazing!
