Santa Ana winds next two days....gusts to 60 mph. I think my garden may be toast. Won't know until after work......

Good luck to ya...it was a 65 mph gust that took the big maple tree down onto my garden! My garden froze Saturday night, so nothing left to worry about now, other than the clean-up and soil amendments.

I'm worried about plants getting beat up....

We've had some fierce winds here as well. Not 60 MPH winds, but still high enough for us to knock down a couple of limbs and trees. One HUGE oak limb fell within 1.5 feet of my box. I was so grateful it didn't hit anything important (the box, let alone the house!!)

I hope you are not close to the fires. It really looked scary on the news this morning!

Yikes! Any news on the garden yet?

1. Not near the fires. I'm in the OC, south of Disneyland.

2. We didn't have the expected winds today. The peppers looked a little tired and droopy, peas lost a twig or two, but the butternut squash got beat up. Some of the leaves looked like rags. I trimmed it a little and gave everything a good drink last night. Haven't seen things today yet.....

Hey duhast, how close are you to Blythe?

About 180 miles as the crow flies.

What's in Blythe besides Steaks & Cakes and humidity?

RE: Hoo boy.....wind and Blythe

Me, about twice a month. If you were closer, I'd meet you at Sizzler for lunch...they have a good one there! Believe me, when you live in Bouse, AZ Blythe is big city! They also have Ace Hardware and K-Mart, a patch of alfalfa behind Albertsons (for our rabbit's alfalfa habit), and a good family doctor. Looks like you and I are about 230 miles apart though.

I try to avoid that part of the desert. I even like Barstow to Kingman better than Indio to Phoenix, though Needles to Kingman is pretty crap.

RE: Hoo boy.....wind

LOL, my kids' god parents are in Blythe. I'm with duhast, we make them visit us.

RE: Hoo boy.....wind

You guys have never been to Bouse, LOL! Blythe is really a depressed area, but at least it has a store or two! It's only 50 miles from us, and our only other shopping area is either Lake Havasu City at 70 miles or Buckeye at about 90 miles. If we're really going to shop, we go to Goodyear so we can hit just about every store we want in a ten mile radius.

duhast, I haven't been from Needles to Barstow, just Needles to Vegas or Laughlin. Needles is worse than Blythe in my opinion.

Did we just go off topic? I wonder how that happened ;-)
