Good that they don't.  I'll have to look at our HD.  Bradford pears are
planted everywhere in the Knoxville area.  I think it will be a matter of
time before residential and commercial folks get tired of the breakage.  I
need to look at the Middle TN-East TN line again as I thought much of ours
came from Middle TN.  :)

Home Depot does not even sell Bradfords anymore.  We now recommend
Cleveland
pear trees.  Incidentally, Bonnie, all our trees come from nurseries in
East
TN.

I agree about the bradfords...on our flight from Chicago to Oklahoma, a
woman talked about the ice storms and said that in Tulsa most of the
bradfords just split right down the middle.  I know a lot of people like
them but in our area they just constantly break from winds and ice that
I
don't think them worth it.

We also need the rain here- but I could live without the 45 mph winds.
I have 2 bradford pears near my house- makes me nervous.

I wish it were raining here.  Although some more northern East TN
counties
and the mountains got snow, we got only frost...we desperately need
moisture...ended up with a 3-4 month deficit for 2007 (depends on
which
months you count).  I'm afraid to start any new plants.  We have been
fairly cold this week but things are supposed to warm up over the
weekend.
If we stay warmer than average, then, this winter has followed the
pattern
of the past three years with December having the coldest temperatures
but
not as wet as normal and warmer weather bringing on spring in
February
and
March.

It is pouring here again and very windy.  Glad I'm not flying today!
I
went outside a bit ago and uprighted a pot- only to have it blow
over
again. made sure gutters were all running and storm drain was clear.
Also staked and tied my wild lime that is in a pot and was becoming
unhinged at the roots. By the time I came inside I was completely
soaked
and dripping.  I should have picked my tangelos while I was out, but
didn't think of it and I'm not going back out now that I'm dry
again.

Not yet...despite yesterday's breathless predictions of high winds and
drowning rain, it is bright and sunny here this morning. Had to
wear
sunglasses driving in. Now they say the deluge will happen tonight
through Saturday. I can see a huge cloudbank off to the northwest,
so
I'm waiting.
I still don't see why it can't rain during the week, when I don't have
outside activity planned.

We got rain and a fair amount of it too!  I hope some made its way
down
to you too Cyndi.

Yeah... Seems everyone's into fear-mongering lately. And it's getting

Our local paper has apparently hired a comedy writer, no doubt
one

those poor souls on the picket line in Hollywood. Their article this
morning says that over the next few days we could get up to six

Six inches of rain. Yeah, and Santa Claus left all those
presents,
too.
Okay so they did hedge their bets with the "could get" part but
the
article is full of breathless speculation about this incredible
deluge.
It's almost as bad as the TV news and their "STORMWATCH!" teams.
Hmmpf.
