Re: weather rant was: just checking

A sled - you're cracking me up! Channel 8 is our local ABC affiliate,
but they have some top-notch meteorologists. The head guy's been there
over 25 years, and he's from this part of the world, and he knows what
he's talking about. We don't have cable out here either. But I don't
watch TV except to see what's going on w/ the weather - so it's not a
big deal. Started more seeds this a.m. and am in the process of cleaning
up my lasagna bed (veggies and herbs). Noticed my leucojums (Gravetye
Giant) are blooming, I love those. Can't grow lily-of-the-valley here,
so this is as close to it as I can get.

Gonna finish my tea and head back outside for a bit!!
