RE: Hello/now vegetables/now snow

Thought you might like this- I lived just north of Buffalo in '77 and
remember that school was closed for 5 days and after being stuck in the
house for 2 days we ventured out to the mailbox.  Trying to walk to then end
of the driveway was very hard and it took 3 of us holding on to each other
to get there due to the driving wind and giant snow drifts.    One drift
reached the roof in back of the house- so once the blizzard had stopped we
packed down the snow and made "stairs" to climb up it and sled down.

Yes, Theresa...munch peas for me, please!  We have had the worst
winter in 30 years here - I still have some patches of snow that
haven't melted after several warm days - but it is receding while the
poor late bulbs are sticking their noses up through the muck.  Saw 1
crocus blooming today.  Boy do I have some sad looking evergreen
perennials; think I've lost most of my big evergreen euphorbs; they
look terrible.  All the leaves I did not get up last fall are matted
down like felt...talk about a clean up job!

Dunno how long it's been since you lived in MD, but it is now
gridlock pretty much around the clock, so snow just turns all into a
total parking lot - even the hint of snow and 2' really did the
trick.  Luckily, the big snow happened over a long weekend, but the
Tues. people headed back to work was awful.

Agree....would not choose this time to fly. Airlines are gonna be
hurting even more than usual, considering the mind-set that appears
to be in operation at the top.  Whadda waste!
