My plants have been in the garage since last night. Anything outside will have to sink or swim.

Luckily I haven't planted anything that I sowed indoors yet. My winter sown babies are in the ground but they're used to the cooler weather. Covered up my morning glories that had sprouted so I didn't lose them. Hopefully we'll be in the clear after tonight.

I hear 80s for the weekend.
