Final cold snap

Saturday, March 8, 2008

There's a cold snap forecasted for tonight. The weather folks say it will get down to 33 degrees (F) but I'm going to be lazy and not protect my plants. I just get tired of digging that bird-of-paradise around and pulling out the blankets for the in-ground plants. The cold snap we had in February didn't seem to cause too much damage. Plus we had tons of rain today, and irrigating before a cold snap is supposed to help protect plants from cold damage. Fingers crossed!
Update: No damage. Yay! One of my co-workers says it dropped to 31 degrees across town at his house, but my plants fared fine.

Same here - I was over it and didn't bother covering anything. I didn't loose anything either!
