Oh, you're a tropical paradise compared to me. I'm Zone 5a and just barely that.
Spring will get to you faster than it will to me. Did you get buried in snow last week - weekend? We're supposed to get between 6 and 8 inches here between yesterday and late Tuesday night. The amount isn't the problem, the problem will be when the winds kick in tomorrow at 25 to 35 mph and we have white out conditions and drifting. That will be a problem. LOL
