Rick welcome back. If I remember right my ears were pinned once and almost became bacon. It isn't fun but sometimes it is necessary. I remember how I felt and although not fun This is the greatest pack of Piggies I have ever met. Ella is so awesome to do all this work with her admins help. We are a very Blessed lot of Piggies to have a Great Mom and Mom's helpers to keep us from running amuck.

Is there any word on Kwilds? Do you still need an email?

Thanks all for making this possible as I have a chance to plant things I normally wouldn't have access to.

By the way I am doing an Atlas Co-op over on AllthingsPlants if anyone is interested. Atlas Nitrile 370 Garden Glove $2.07 a pair and the Atlas Therma Fit 451Glove for $2.18 a pair. There is a 1.00 order charge for supplies not a per pair charge.

Ella I hope you don't mind me posting this here. If I have over stepped I am sorry. I tip my hat to you.

With the rain, sleet, ice balls and snow. I will probably be off line til it over sometime Thursday. I'll have more downed tree limbs and our power lines are gonna freeze and we'll probably lose power and don't want to blow a modem when it happens.

If anybody has any questions, holler at Patti for serious stuff. Normal stuff, their regular piggies here that should be able to answer questions and help. They good about that.

Boxes should be going out Friday. Airport will be closing once this mess hits. No salt trucks , no snow plows and no de-icers at airport other than one or two. So hopefully Thursday they should have back log of packages that been stacked and piled out of way and should make clear flying for ya all over the weekend and hopefully by Monday or Tuesday folks should be doing happy dance or groaning when they wonder where they gonna put all the seed. :lol:

Posted this on chat thread too.

Everyone stay safe and warm! Here is midstate SC, we will be seeing 2' to 4" of the rare snow, as well as lots of of ice. Like Ella, we are not equipped to deal with it.

Piggies!!!!!! Yep, it gonna be Monday before seeds go out. I am still in an icecube world. 14 Hours of sleet rain that turned to ice than got 3 and 1/2" of snow on top. Think that is a record for here.

Schools been closed for two days, mall and alot of stores all closed. Most roads you can't even travel on, if it has a bridge they got it barricaded. Just listening to news and another bad accident here. Somebody crashed on bridge not too far from me. Traffic backed up for miles and miles and miles on main road. Just hope the folks survived.

Still can't get my back door open. Still froze solid, and even tried kicking it. Both fronts were froze this morning worse than yesterday. Woke up to 7F this morning.

Love ya all to pieces and so ready for these seeds to be gone, but no way am I gonna try and get out in this mess. Monday it supposed to be in 60's and this mess melted away and will be safe to be out and about.

Well, it finally rained in California, so maybe it is time for the east coast to warm up. We are expecting more rain and possibly snow. I think it last snowed in November here. Then it has been cool to warm ever since. It is 45° now, so not exactly cold, but not warm either.

It's time I started my winter sowing. For a while, I thought that winter had abandoned us and stayed on the east coast. Sorry, Ella, and all the other folks who had to endure the harsh weather. It has gone on too long!!!

It is wet out, but the rain has stopped for now. Maybe I will gather some soil ingredients to mix for seed-starting, as I am rather late this year. It is also time to start many things inside. My husband does not like my hobby as soil manages to get places where it does not belong, as well as winter-sowing on the back porch...."Oh why do you have to make such a big mess on the back porch every winter??" Sticking tongue out Grumbling

Now I will "try" to keep it neat, but I usually do the long run... Whistling

Oh, yes, Kacee, I sure hope you get a nice steady gentle rain. Gullywashers will erode the coastal areas and cause landslides, and mudslides in the hills. We just need a lot of good steady rain with short breaks in between. Be sure to include those details when doing your rain dance. Whistling

PIGGIES !!!!!!!!!!

Everybody read. Tomorrow is PFE day. That is Piggies Flying Everywhere Day.

I have folks here working on the damage to my place. They should be done sometime today, but there no way I can make it to Po in time. Also I have appointments in town tomorrow right by the po so that saves a 40 mile trip.

I should be back home by about 6 or so pm my time and than I'll start cmailing everybody their tracking numbers. Long haulers will cmail ya tomorrow some time and soon as ya answer will get ya in the mail.

I hope I have everything for everybody. If their is something wrong, cmail me. If you have a problem with something you received or didn't receive from somebody, CMAIL ME!!!!! not them. Some folks may have accidentally forgotten something or ran out of something, which happens, or just couldn't find the seed when it came to make packets. It happens. I got one seed I been hunting forever for. Have no idea where I put it and been through stuff three times. If and when I do find it I will mail it out to ya. DO NOT be afraid to cmail me. Hey I forget stuff too. I have plenty of bacon, so won't make mincemeat out of any piggies. I will be upset if I find out later ya had a problem and didn't say nothing. Momma's always know everything. Hilarious!

Moving things all around all them slippery packets some times slide out or as like last year a couple went into wrong trough . I double checked names, but just encase ya do get somebody elses packet please be kind enough to let em know and send it on. I'll send ya postage to do it.

Folks, becareful opening your packages. Do not let them sit around as some have bulbs, tubers and/ or live plants in it. Also be very careful when you go to open some of your packets from folks. Some folks make punch holes in the top of their seeds packets and if you open and go to shake out you just might shake em all over the floor to never be found again. I swear carpet eats em. Thumbs up I would suggest opening things over a plate.

The only real problem I seen was that Corey forgot seeds to Evelyn and to Deebie. I know Corey posted over on the other site that he knew he forgot Eveyln and would be mailing personally to her. Deebie, you might contact him and tell him to send your seeds to you personally too. Those two folks should be the only folks cmailing somebody about something.

Folks have done the best they could and if anybody wants to complain about missing seed packet, you better do it to me and not the person. I will find out if it happens. Whistling If anybody does have a proble with somebody cmailing them and complaining in any sort of form, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. This been a nice friendly swap all these long years and I not gonna tolerate somebody who rude to other folks in it for next year. That why I here, or cmail Patti, or Tcs, but Tcs is tied up at the moment.

SASSAFRASS>>>>> I still need you to cmail me and give me a mailing addy. Holding your seeds til I do.

( If anybody sees her at any of the places please, tell her I need her will ya.)

No word from KWild. I will be sending her seeds on as soon as she contacts me too. Haven't seen nor heard from her since Dec 19th. Have sent several cmails. I hope nothing happened to her. I know they was in the main part of that artic blast. Anybody she her around, let me know and tell her I need her to contact me, so I can send her seeds on, please.

For newbies, just so ya know. Two things. Just cuz ya had no this or this on your don't want list, you may have gotten something that makes ya go ewww. Have to divide out what comes in. Sometimes it happens. If ya got something ya don't like you can always give or trade it away.

2. Bottom of barrel means just that. Those that signed up. That all the seed that I couldn't find to really fit on folks lists or was extras donated. Where the packets land they land. I play 52 Piggy Pick up with them. The funest part for me. I grab and toss. Again if ya get something ya don't like, pass it on or use it for a trade with somebody for something ya may want.

Oh, important. Make sure ya don't leave boxes around unopened where pets can get into them. Can't spoil a surprise, but ya don't want them to get to it before you do. Whistling Big Grin

Ok, I think that everything I can think of for the moment. Nope one more thing. Corey, you was last piggy in so you gotta clean the barn out. Get busy with your shovel. New hay up in loft to be put down. Soon as I know all the piggies have received their boxes than I will turn off the lights and lock the barn door til next year.

To all the piggies that participated. Thank you and a special Thank you to a few piggies who went above and beyond to make things special for folks. You know who you are. I appreciate it and I sure the piggies will. Group hug Lovey dubby

Going to post this on the chat thread too. Big Grin

oh dear, seems like I made a major error. I put a note in all the packages I sent to cmail me if I made any errors. I know I must have made some, had a major personal disaster going on and found myself almost incapable of thinking clearly at times. sorry, did not know this was breech of the rules. just did not want to disappoint anyone

Rising. That ok, I know ya did. I know ya did it cuz with all the major family emergencies ya had going on, you may have missed something and I know your notes were out of goodness for the piggies. Hey with all ya had going on surprised you did all what ya did. You good and I have no problem with piggies cmailing you or I would have said something about the notes.

Your an exception to the rule. You had such utter chaos going on. Ya did good for all what ya trying to survive through. Hope everybody still doing ok and hope they all remain that way. Group hug
