COLD BLAST IS COMING THOUGH - or some such thing.
About 2, 2 and a half years ago, a hard freeze hit this area. It destroyed a lot of trees and plants all over the place.
They are saying this thing coming through is going to be worse than that one and are warning everyone to cover EVERYTHING up or it's probably not going to come out too well in the end.
Well, I take such warnings seriously, I have gone to FAR too much work and trouble to plant all of this stuff only to have Mother Nature come along and kill it. I have enough blankets and sheets that I accumulated from last year to cover just about everything. I got even more this year I should be able to cover all of it. My Christmas lights will also help. If I had big fans, that would help too, but I don't.
So, Thursday afternoon I am covering everything up and it's going to stay that way for 2 nights in a row, the length of time they are saying the hard freeze conditions will be around.....................and hope whatever I do is enough, cause if it isn't, I'm going to be a very unhappy person if my plants all die or suffer serious freeze damages. I can deal with some leaves being ruined, but an entire plant? Gag.
