    See you guys are having a chill over there. Sarras should be OK as long as they are not exposed to the cold dry wind..
    Best Regards

    I lost a third of my plants this winter to the Ravages of the Frost Giants. This is the Fell Winter of 2003 here in NY. The snow is 5 foot deep in my pack yard, and this isn't drifted snow, but flat accumulation. The snowbanks are 7 foot high, and the drifts cover half the first story windows. We have averaged a foot, yes a FOOT, of snow per day for close to a week. I spent 15 manhours with a shovel just to keep the driveway open and the walkway clear. For you glad souls in other countries and warmer states, just to give you a perspective, our first daffodils open around the first to second week of April. Winter is *half* over here. The worst thing is it does no good to weep: the tears just freeze. Man, it's so cold here I will be able to hear myself cursing the winter in the second week of April when my words thaw out and are able to be heard. Right now they are just lying there on top of the snow. Hey Nep G, does your weather report read "-31 below zero, but feels like -40"? I will kill the next out of state person that asks if I have made any snowmen, or worse yet: encourage them to move to NYS.

    Sorry for the off topic. I overwinter my sarraceniae at about 35-40F, but occasionally, or frequently this season, the temps are below freezing. So far, all has been well.

    Dyflam, I ENVY you that 28F. I would probably have a cookout.

    This winter ahs been the worst to my gh....so many freezes so many plants gone...it does NO good to weep either....I'm surprized if I can shed a tear that DOESN'T freeze! I feel like I am those poor people in Russia who have -50F. I am welcoming the 30 above we are supposed to have this coming Wednesday...let's pray those temps will stay...I am sick of looking at the -15F every fr*gg*ng night on the thermometer!
