RE: unseasonable cold front

We've had odd weather here too but not unwelcome. Cloudy all week, a
little humid, and quite warm, not particuarly windy. For spring in the
high desert, that's weird - it ought to be cold and blowing hard. Can't
say I miss the wind or the cold. We went to the opening game for the
local baseball team last night and didn't need our parkas, gloves or
I have one day this weekend to get work done in the veggie garden and
then Sunday will be with my sister & her family. I put the tomatoes and
eggplant out to harden off but I'm leaving the peppers inside for a
while longer. I should be able to get everything but the peppers either
transplanted or seeded, if I don't get distracted by all the other
million things that need to be done. 
Los Angeles Times this morning has an article about a study published in
Science journal that predicts a permanent drought in the Southwest by
2050, and says it looks like we are in the beginning of it now. Great.

It has been below freezing every night here for the past 3 days and
forecast is for at least another 3 nights. Tonight it is supposed to get
to 18, setting a new record for the date. Unfortunately, the previous
warm weather fooled many plants into breaking dormancy. Many woodies
have new leaves that will probably be toast. I have a couple of young
shrubs planted last fall that may not be well enough established to
re-leaf. Depressing.
