RE: crummy weather here< palms

Donna: Keep your winds, we have our own right now! :-) We even had a
mini-blizzard here in east Central Iowa for a short time today...I went
into the grocery store and came out 30 minutes later to total white-out
conditions...30 minutes later it was gone as quickly as it had come and
left no snow on the ground...a lot of slush that mysteriously
disappeared almost instantanously thanks to temps that dropped about 15
degrees in an hour and the high winds blowing...what moisture that was
left standing in puddles froze into sheets of black ice, though, but
fortunately it is very sporadic. The whole thing was very bizzare. Since
the beginning of the mini-blizzard right on until even now, the wind has
been gusting with a terrible force...making every thing dry and
sooooooooooooooooooooo cold!!! I just keep saying my winter time mantra
over and over..."Spring is coming, spring is coming..." Wish I was going
to Hawaii like Marianna!

Hey, you used to live in this climate--- :) Wish I had you for a
neighbor to start all my plants and get to all the stuff that needs to
be done here. Hope Pat appreciates it :) And as one who has been on your
receiving end of seeds and stuff.. I do appreciate it!

And speaking of weather....  the wind is something else here this
afternoon. Claim it will be howling thru at 50mph by morning... can't be
far off it already. About knocked me over ....- So Ceres and Melody...
if you sent this wind- you can have it back.. it is drying out
