I have the same problem. Usually, I can put the hoses away well before
I have to worry about them freezing up. I've already lost at least one
plant to the dry fall (because I wasn't paying close enough attention)
and am worried about some others. I also shook some blocks of ice out
of a hose that I guess didn't drain well enough this weekend.
We're supposed to have rain Wednesday. I hope it comes.
