RE: No gardening?


I'm so sorry to hear about your mother-in-law. Now that I'm older I really
appreciate having my MIL and father still in my life. I get very melancholy
knowing that there may not be much time left with them.

We are experiencing ice and freezing rain since about noon.  I'm out sick
for the second day, and I consider myself lucky as I would be driving my 33
mile commute on a sheet of ice!  My husband is driving home from Boston as I
write this.  I couldn't convince him to stay over night. It will probably be
a VERY long drive!  It usually takes 6 hours.  Last I heard, he was driving
15 mph.  There is more snow north of here, so it will be slow going for him.
We have an inch of that wet compacted snow on the grassy areas, but my
walkway is coated in ice. I hate when he goes on business trips in the
winter! So far the power seems to be ok- no flickering lights.

Boy, Jesse, I feel for you!  I worry about keeping all my animals and plants
warm.  Years ago we were without power for a week due to an ice storm. At
that time I had an extensive collection of African Violets and gesneriads.
It didn't take long without power to turn my collection into mush.

I did get outdoors last weekend to plant a few bags of alliums that I
ordered very late in the season.  I never finished the fall list of chores.
I always seem to be playing "catch up" on all fronts. :(

Stay well everyone,
