    2 inches of snow and a wind chill in the single digits already

    since about 2pm this afternoon. It snowed all morning but nothing stuck until this afternoon. The wind's ferocious, blowing the snow and making it look like a blizzard out there! Weather-man's predicting even more snow and lower temps overnight. BRRRRRRRRRR

    Happy and warm inside, now sitting beside a crackling fire in the wood stove! YAHOOO for wood heat ya can cozy up to! ;-) LOLOL

    How's things in YOUR 'neck o' da woods'?!

    Re: 2 inches of snow and a wind chill in the single digits already

    No snow here, but it's f---freezing cold!!! Good news, temps in the 60s for the weekend. Yeah for the warm fronts!

    the only thing helping some of us hang in there

    is knowing the warm front will be here in just a few days! YAHOOOOO!

    it was about 11º last night when I finally headed to bed. Dunno what it was overnight but it was freeeeeeeezing - and still is. Every so often the sun peeks out but not for long. Mostly cloudy, windy, snow-flurries and COLD.

    Now I'm just waiting to see what plants have been hurt by all this cold. Somehow I feel that the palm tree I planted won't make it. I knew I should've kept in the house for a few years - given it time to grow and get stronger before subjecting it to the cold(er) weather here. Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised in the spring? I hope so!

    Anyway, I hope everyone's able to stay warm and safe!!

    Re: the only thing helping some of us hang in there

    Some palms can withstand a freeze--hopefully yours will. Looking at the temp on my screen-- it's 18 degrees right now. Tomorrow is supposed to get up to 47 and sixties on the weekend. I should have dug out my pendelton coat but I didn't, so I don't stay out in the cold any longer than I have to.

    The daffodils and day lilies have shoots sticking up about 2 inches out of the ground--I don't think they've ground anymore since this last round of cold weather. I'm wondering if they'll start over or continue growing when the weather gets and stays warm. We even had trees which were showing signs of leafage (leavery?). Hopefully this cold snap won't delay glorius spring!

    Re: Re: the only thing helping some of us hang in there

    the palm is supposed to be hardy to 10º ... and when it was down near 0º a while back, I put a tomato stake over it. On the stake, I put a blanket and then topped that with a tarp. I left it over the palm until the freeze was gone (like 3 or 4 days). I figured the lack of sun (not that there really was any to speak of at that time) was better than the certain freeze.

    Now that you mention it, I did see some shoots last week. I think they're either crocus or narcissus - might be daffy-dills but I doubt it. Seems a hair too early ... but this is close enough to the right time, they should be okay. It is their "kind of weather" / season.

    I just hope we don't have another spring of late freezes that kill the early blooms on wisterias, lilacs, and other flowering trees/shrubs! Waaah I wanna see and smell my flowers this year!!!

    Re: You and me both!!

    I love spring flowers! And Spring ain't spring without 'em!

    spring-like temps coming

    and with it, bringing spring fever!!!

    We got daffodils!!!

    They're beginning to bloom! We have robins flying around--life is good.

    Re: And stinky Bradford Pears!

    Maybe the next version of those things should smell better and not fall apart so easily.
