Right now, it is 26 F, wind is 10 mph, gusts to 18..wind chill in the
teens. Humidity is 65%, which is low..It was 84 this afternoon. This is
normal for us. We see single digits every year, and below zero single
digits every 10 years or so. It's been snowing all day, but not
sticking...blowing hard though...
I just take comfort in knowing that I'm gardening while you guys are
shoveling snow...hehe..I am planting potatoes (tomorrow), while you guys
are playing with the snow chains <g>.

"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will
not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius
will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the
world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone
are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve
the problems of the human race"
~ Calvin Coolidge
