Mercy, what a wind yesterday!!! There were several times I thought we'd all have to abandon the mobile unit and seek shelter!! Winds from 40 mph to 65 mph were clocked, and the water-logged pines under which we work, were clacking together and bending in two -- whew.
This morning, there are a limbs littering the parking lot and trails, and folks lost power in parts of the state, but thank heavens, we're all okay.
We left the office in a hurry last night -- the sky had turned a menancing black, purple and pink, and dark enough to be midnight -- my wee Prius I suppose is heavier than it looks, and made it to the much sturdier B&B in good shape -- and far earlier than I have all week.
I decided to sketch something a bit more cheerful, warmer, and DRYER -- since we've been having a ot of rain as well!
Radishes remind me that spring can't be too far off - and for us here at the Arboretum,we've already received our seeds for the spring plant sale.
Classes start today -- so we're in full 'run' mode!
Stay safe and warm ...!
