Weather and Gardening Just Don't Mix
Last night at about 6:00 p.m., we had a hail storm. Boy, did that suck. The lovely astilboides tabularis pictured below is now full of holes. @#$@##$@! The rest of the garden has a few holes in it but did okay. It could have been much, much worse. After the hail had passed, we took off to a movie. Just a few miles south, the highway looked like we had just gotten six inches of snow- huge piles of hail, so much so that the storm drain at the exit ramp had about a foot of hail blocking it, creating a giant lake. Cool. The medians in the movie theater parking lot had about 3-4 inches of hail. That could have been us, but wasn't. Whew!
