Yes, there is a huge difference between north and south Georgia. What
is 300 miles south of Regina?

That is usually the way it is here. We can get a good bit of snow, but
it is usually gone in a few days. The most snow I have ever seen here
in north Georgia was 2 feet with 5-7 foot drifts. We usually get 1-4
inches at a time, two or three times a year. Every ten years or so you
get a good dumping. Our snow is very wet, not in any way the dry powder
snow you see out West. Usually it turns to ice quickly.
It almost never snows in south Georgia. If you grew up there, there is
a good chance you may have never experienced snow.

I will be planting seeds for my Spring and Summer garden on the 28th. I
will transplant to the garden beds in late March.
Bev in NW Georgia, where the temp is 21F, Humidity is 74% and the
windchill is 8. (Gusts to 35mph) Temps are dropping.

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"
