Cold, but no flakes

Well, we woke up this morning to: No Snow, Praise the Lord! In a mad scramble last night, in the dark, with rain coming down, I was running around like a crazed woman trying to do something to save my flowers. I mean, who has time or money to replace all that? So with my strong hubby-man lifting five planters up on the front porch (that's 5 heavy planters up 5 steps. Thank God for muscles.) where they would be somewhat protected, I ran around "sheeting" the rest.







You wouldn't believe how many flowers and planters I've got crammed under the one on the deck. And the crazy thing is around here it's always been that you don't plant out until the May long weekend which was this last weekend. And I was a good girl and didn't even though I had all my flowers bought on Mother's Day. Oh, the irony of it all.




I've got more planters that were just too heavy to move covered in sheets elsewhere but I thought that was enough dirty laundry to air in one post. Sheesh, looking at those sheets, they are the ugliest things. I think I've got to go sheet shopping very soon. Now aren't you glad you came by, because what would your day have been without this mind enhancing, informative post put up by yours truly.


And on that note, here is what the big city two hours from us woke up to this morning:

Now I hope they ran around sheeting. Spring, oh Spring wherefore art thou, Spring?

This is unfathomable. It is nearly 90* here. Wow. If I were in that location of the last picture, I would be seriously depressed.

Lol, you did a good job. I call this 'emergency preparedness' :)

Shalee said...

I could not live there! And I sheeted over Easter... That is just wrong! But we've got 70's now and that makes me happy.

That depresses me more than I can say. It's been HOT here all week - high 20s! - but the temperature is supposed to plummet, starting today. In a way it's good because we've been way too hot, but in another way, I hate to see the return of anything resembling winter!

I'm glad the snow missed you! Looks like you did a good job of covering everything.
Just can NOT imagine snow this time of year!
