Another frost

The forecast for Springfield at NOAA is 32 for tonight and Saturday night. Just barely a frost unless they lower it some more. Of course they wouldn't do that. lol I think I'd be a bit angry if I got my seedlings through that last cold blast and then lost them tonight. Glad I looked at the forecast. The temps weren't that low when I looked yesterday.

Hey they've raised it to 36! Maybe I won't have to go out and cover everything after all. That's surprising since it didn't get as warm today as I thought it was supposed to.

RE: Another frost

Isn't this cold snap just maddening!! All the little leaves on the trees, all the pretty spring flowers, and even them lilacs are dead. I look forward every spring to our beautiful bright pink azaelas. The freeze killed every last bloom and they are now black!!! I am so sad I could cry!! I guess the early warm weather spoiled us to soon this year!! I cannot wait for spring...again! : )

RE: Another frost

Here's another one waiting for our second spring. The 10:00 news was predicting a low of 28
saturday night. It sounded like it would'nt be that low but for a couple hours so maybe wont hurt anything.

RE: Another frost

they are saying 31 low for sat here. this weather is crazy. had wind gusts up to 50 mph yesterday.

outside planting will start sunday regardless of the weather.

RE: Another frost

How's your weather today, William? Are you still going to start planting tomorrow?

RE: Another frost

anise- arkansas advertises the 4 seasons. i have seen 6 in the last month!

we had a hell of a hail storm yesterday at around 5 pm. scared me to death. just 30 days after i completed my greenhouse. all is ok though. about 3 inches of rain which we really needed. high forecast today is only 46 and it is very overcast with sprinkles.

i was going to start tomorrow but my son is on the way here from ga. through tunica. that is, if he has gas money left!!!!!


RE: Another frost

It's a good excuse to stay in, keep warm, and catch up on gardening shows and some garden books.
