RE: Grumbling.....

I know what you're saying, Donna.  It's been raining for 3 days straight
with little time between showers.  At least we aren't getting really savage
storms though we had winds yesterday that were about 40mph with gusts to
50mph.  They actually gave us a wind chill this a.m.  Our weather folks are
telling us to expect rain for the next 7-10 days with lows in the 40's.
Don't you wish we could share some of this with Pam and others in drought

My plants/transplants will have to "tough it out."  Most of the plumbs
developing on the plumb tree blew off yesterday.  There are little green
"marbles" everywhere!  I have a feeling with the cool temperatures and the
inability to mow really wet grass, we'll need a hay bailer the next dry day
and a machete between property lines where it becomes an impromptu stream
with so much rain in the spring.  

Stay warm and dry as you can, Donna!

Ma nature is showing her stuff again.... cold here, currently raining and
they are talking a possiblity of some snow for the northern part of the
geesh... will it never end? Had to drag out the coat again.... (feels like
28 they claim)

If they are right, this weekend will not be for gardening, as they claim it
will at least be raining thru monday. sigh.

My end of last year sale greenhouse has really gotten use this year. Stayed
toasty in there last night and the plants are thriving (a bit too well
Sure beats the move them in and out of the garage like I usually do.  Wonder
how many folks already planted their annuals around here- last few weeks
have been warm, even at night. Never thought it would snow again, although I
did figure we would have one last frost....

So those east of me... look out- it's comin'
