Sorry, LPB.
I won't rub in the weather here, as you reap the rewards with
wonderful gardens of stuff I can't grow in the spring.

Here's a little contrast for all my friends out there. This morning at 7am I spoke with my oldest son, who live in Fairbanks, Alaska. Here at home the temp was 54F right after dawn, His temp was -47F (no dawn; it's dark all the time). That's a difference of 101 DEGREES! By this afternoon the difference was over 120F. How's them apples???

We've still got snow coming down but not nearly as bad as earlier. Officially we got between 12 and 14 inches since Friday night. Our driveway was plowed three times since Friday and now it's getting covered up again. It's 25 degrees with a windchill of 15.

As I am again closer to the equator than Hawaii, in Panamá, we too are fortunate to have that balmy, tropical weather. Wish I could send some of it to all of you guys enduring this cold winter in most parts of the world. Warm wishes, at least, to you all!
