Well, our "big storm" only dropped a little over 3/4 " of rain at my house, but the temps are down to 35 tonight with 56 for a high tomorrow. They are getting snow where there hasn't been any in 30 years though. We only have one (mountain?) in Orange county that is high enough to get a little snow in severe weather. I can see it out of my back door, if I want to see snow. If I get up on the freeway, I can see the San Bernardino mountains on a clear day. Beautiful to look at as long as it is two hours away.

Anyway, I'm glad you made it, and got pics!

Thanks, Carol. I often feel like I am tiptoeing through the snowflakes (and wishing it was the raindrops) between our snowstorms! Very strange weather everywhere! I wonder if nancy went to the Buffalo show today. Funny thing, when I talked to the Piping Rock sellers today, Glen Decker was in Buffalo.

Kathy, it looks like a beautiful Show. Thanks for posting!
Does the smell sign belong to the Angraecum distichum? If so, my plant must be the only one with dud-blooms, although they are very cute. I think it was Laurel ( ?) who also mentioned the scent.

Gosh, never thought to smell the 3 flowers mine came with! But I'm sure the smell me sign was for the dendrochilum in front (wish I could read the tag for the name).

I see, thanks. The Dendrochilum makes sense, so many have a really nice scent.
