Re: No gardening?

Glad to hear you escaped the storm.... We didn't get much here, still
raining now, but I fear tomorrow mornings drive into work may be
slippery. Everything is flooding around here and it is supposed to get
cold and start snowing...

I just went out and took beautiful pictures of the ice on everything. It 
is raining on top of all that ice so I am worried that we might get some 
limbs breaking soon. The rain is needed but a scary way to get it. My 
daughter in the Tulsa area and has no electricity with one tree uprooted 
towards the house and one small pear broke off in the middle. The entire 
neighborhood is a disaster. No electricity and broken beautiful trees 
I wonder how Jesse is doing?
