Are you staying dry up there with all the rain/flooding???
Exactly, Beth. Well, only 60's here, not 70's yet. Still - seeding my lettuces & brassicas is probably best done after the 5" of rain!

I'll deal with the rainy Monday because the outlook for the end of the week is spectacular! I think tomorrow we get more rain and wind but by Friday upper 70's and sunny!
We're definitely making up for a dry winter up here. 4.9" rain forecast for the next few days. That's kinda what we normally get in a month.
Then it's growing time.
Definitely! I heard the winds ranged up to 74 mph here, where there was very little damage. In leaf... yeah. Hurricane-force winds take down deciduous trees ever so well.
Had friends down from NY (near Utica) who said the winds were impressive. Imagine the damage if the trees were in full leaf...
Beth - later found out one of my neighbors is out of school for most of the week. He teaches down in Norwalk. Apparently 3 days after the Noreaster was over, there were still about 40,000 homes (plus schools) without power down toward the NYC corner of CT. They must have gotten some truly impressive winds, for all those trees / branches to go down when they don't even have leaves! (Most power lines are above ground in CT, and it's thoroughly wooded.)
Collected lots of rainwater this weekend, that's for sure. Flooding won't touch me - we're at the top of a ridge surrounded by marshes.
I was planning to plant my pansies this past weekend. Not a good weekend for prepping flower beds!
