Re: Re: fireworks NOW flooding

Oh yeah - I know about micro-bursts! Lost an old tree to one 6 years
back. And when the twirlies are close you can watch the wind just swirl
around the yard in circles. Wild. But I'm one of those goofy people who
stand out on the porch and watch tornadoes. I put Sugar in, but I stay
out there, fascinating. Must have been a storm chaser in a previous life
- ha!!

Your poor plants must be waterlogged! I had that problem in February
when it rained for 3 weeks straight. Lost a couple lavenders. So I just
plant them in pots or chimney flue liners now. Too much rain may be just
as bad as too little.

hate that for you lady!!
