Re: Xmas delayed/damage control

Glad you're holding up OK. Finally starting to warm up a tad here. Any
relief in sight for you? Finally got to go out and survey the yard. Some
things held up well, but others look abominable. Since I know y'all grow
daylilies up North, I'm trying not to be concerned that mine look close
to dead. Usually they are evergreen here. Not now they aren't. And all
the blooms on my camellia are now brown mush, how disconcerting! Even
the Powis Castles look a tad frostbit - another first. But some of the
roses have new shoots and the winter honeysuckle is loaded w/ buds. Go

Well, Pam.. Bonnie
    I about half-way wanted things to work out so that only the two of us 
shared Christmas here together, but it was not to be. JoAn could not let 
down the over 100 kids in the Christmas program she was hired to play the 
organ for. A bobcat cam up the road Friday morning and I walked out to get 
him to do our drive way. Won't tell you the price for 350 feet of over 3 
foot drifted snow... anyway we were able to get the van out... but can not 
come back in. Have to park at the end of the driveway. We were only 20 
minutes late at the church for her to play. Came home and ate leftovers with 
a bottle of wine, opened our presents. Christmas day we went to JoAn's 
parents and all of her family that could make it out. Got home about 6 pm. 
Life is never like you think it is going to be. Best to enjoy what does 
come, I suppose.
    Anyway, it was a good Christmas here and hope that it was for all of
