I seen the freeze report. I don't think I I have to worry about too much. I will just push the thick mulch back on top of some things, and the pull off again later.
No the flooding is another thing. the farm my children live on in mcdonald co. is under a lot of water. They called this a.m. and could not get out to go to work. So all is praying it goes down some today. They said they have never seen it so bad. I told then it was in 85'. Hope everyone is safe and all are dry.

Well, it was a rough night here in Van Buren. The golf ball sized hail damaged both my vehicles and house. Most greenhouse window panels were destroyed. But the most important things in life are all right. James

Looks like it's going to get pretty cold Saturday night. I haven't planted anything yet. I've learned my lesson. lol
Sorry about your fruit trees. Maybe they'll raise the temperature a few degrees before Saturday.
Bonnie - Hope it quits raining on McDonald county and the rest of us. I think we've all had enough. There are some small areas just east of Fayetteville that have already gotten 8 inches.
James - So sorry about your greenhouse and your other damage. Hope you have good insurance.

Here is a link that might be useful: rainfall totals

James, I am so sorry about all the damage. We are worrying about the tornado possibilites this afternoon. The last one did a lot of damage here.

So far, we have had 3.5 inches of rain.

Our road is washed out again for the third time in as many weeks. Our creek bottom is full of road base gravel. If the road dept. would get realistic about the required culvert size, this wouldn't keep happening... (as it has been for years, not just since the recent flooding.)But at least we are safe.

thought I would check in today. How is everyone doing/ all dry and safe I hope.
Mostly winds here today. the flooding seems to be at the max and going down some.
My son In-law Got called out w/the electric crew to texas, w/all the damage they have there.
I sure hope this is the last of the flooding. I guess I'll be yapping about no rain in july/aug. lol.
got to run out and pull the mulch back over some plants.

james, sorry to hear about your damage.

in 2 weeks we have had 13.5 inches of rain. road has washed out in 2 places. wind blew like crazy yesterday and big gusts this morning. the low is supposed to be 29 tonight. i have 27 tomato plants in the ground and am not looking forward to this. greenhouse is full of plants and i don't think my heater will handle the 20's.

THIS WEATHER IS DRIVING ME CRAZY!

Thanks all for the words of encouragement. I am still waiting for the adjuster to look at my house. I am hoping they may cover the greenhouse. Anyway, I saw on the news that we may get down to 30 Sunday night. Good thing I haven't set out my tomatoes yet. James

Sorry you have to replant....I hate doing that! Still nothing planted here except a little lettuce that didn't seem to be hurt. I don't know yet about the peaches and apricots. The perennials seem to be fine, but will know better if they bloom.

Hopefully, we are out of the dangerous weather mode.

I was almost sick with the fear that all my newly leafing out vegetation was zapped,(again)...but it appears that only the tender Kiwi and the Hydrangeas are the only leaves that are blackened. One surprise is that the Forsythia blooms were wilted. I am so relieved that none of my Clematis were hurt. Some have good-sized flower buds.
The Redbuds are extra lovely up here and around Harrison.

Sure sorry for all that lost tender plants. I learned long ago not to set any out until the first of May. As weird as all the weather has been, it wouldn't surprise me to get a hard frost in May this year!
