We're not alone

According to this article, cold weather affected a large part of the eastern half of the nation over the weekend. When Tennessee and South Carolina woke up to temps in the low 20's on Sunday, you know it's cold. This NY Times article about Easter in the city made me smile, letting me know that Christmas was warmer than Easter.

In my last post, a comment made by Kathy had the right observation. Better to have continuing cold weather now, while the plants are still dormant, than later during active growth. I do not want to watch flowers on fruiting plants get frozen. As much as I don't want that happening, I would only be losing the current year's crop. The farmers' are losing their livelihood.
