We had 2-3 inches of snow followed by rain and then freezing rain yesterday, ending with another 2-3 inches of snow. I should not say ending, exactly. It is snowing lightly now. So far so good, though. People are staying off the roads and although I have heard of a few power outages we seem to be okay. Record breaking low temperatures are coming, however. I've never been here or anywhere else when it has been as cold as it is about to be. Freezing pipes and cars that won't start seem to be the biggest threats coming up. I am hoping the snow cover will protect some plants, if not it will be a record year of losses. My white Lady Banks Rose was actively growing up until this week.
Poor Kobi. I have to push him out the door for his "bathroom breaks".
