    Cold Snap

    Is the return of winter weather frustrating anyone else? It was starting to get really nice outside last week and my CPs started reviving themselves, then it starts snowing....... I was looking forward to seeing how the plants weathered the winter, and a harsh one at that.

    yeah, i'm getting fed up with this so-called spring. we had some nice weather a couple of weeks ago, nearly melted all the snow, then we got 9" last week. someone said we've had 114 days straight now with snow on the ground, even for WI, that's pretty remarkable. my plants are still in the garage, been there since thanksgiving. i can tell they're yearning to get going, but it's gonna be at least another week or two till they can go out. it'll probably depend on a big system forecasted to move through here early next week. if we get snow, it'll stay too cold, if we get rain, that should get rid of the rest of the snow and allow temps to moderate.

    This is why I'm not moving any further north if I can help it. That's odd, Doomsday. We've been getting an unusual amount of snow in Virginia. It's good to know I'm not the only one that's fed up with the weather. Well, it's not a good thing, but still.
