|Are you flooded Jo Ann? We're wet, but missed most of it, just wandering showers still going through. I had hoped to plant some chrysanthemums with my granddaughter today, but it's a wait and see what's happening after school sort of a day. Someone said the flooding in the southern part of the state was worse than when Agnes went through in the 70s|

|I am high and dry. Irene missed us. Great to hear you are OK.|
My sister in Trumansburg has no phone, cant reach her. guess the worst was south east.

|Glad you folks are OK.|
Such weird weather- horrid drought in Tx, hurricanes and flooding in the northeast.
Our weather is pretty weird right now, too. Last Saturday the hi was 99°, Sunday was 83°, and Monday was only in the 60s. The whole week has been cloudy, dreary, misty rain with temps in the 60s. Our norm would be low 80s. Not much rain at all, but nothing ever dries. This must be like a Seattle winter. Too dreary for me.

|September is usually humid cool and damp. I would like to turn on the furnace just to dry my bedding and clothes. Body heat is the only reliefe from damp everything.|

|That's one of the reasons we still have our air conditioning on- to dry the air. The outside world is damp. More important, though, it cleans the air. Weed pollen at this time of year kills me.|

|We're getting the remnants of Lee in sporadic downpours. I just went out to get milk in jeans and a tee shirt and wished I'd put on a sweater, but it's supposed to warm up. I guess the chrysanthemum planting will wait until Monday.|

|Same here. Not much rain at all, but just wet and cold. It's also supposed to be remnants of Lee, supposed to warm up in the next few days. I have a few new plants from Santa Rosa gardens to get in the ground, but I have to clear what's already in those spots. |
One of those new plants is geranium Rozanne. I bought a tiny one from Bluestone last fall. It came back and has never been out of bloom since May. I'm impressed.

|That video is amazing, Jo Ann!|

|Today is the best day of the weekend. I have 30 daffs to plant,just did half and will wait til afternoon to put the rest in. Its exhausting. I cant believe I will recieve another order of allium and mini daffs total over 200. Gawd how did I volunteer for this?|
I am trying to deterr the voles that ate some of my many lilies last winter.

|Katleene I believe I have traveled that route. Those are little trickles down the shale at other times of the year. Bless the Police and other emergancy volunteers who are on watch.That is the type of situation anyone could drive into in the dark.|

|Oh my goodness, that video is frightening! So glad you are okay, Jo Ann. I'll be waving at you when I fly into Buffalo on Wednesday to see my family!|

|Jo Ann, we've been there, too. It never looked that scary, though!|

|It was a very long time ago for me,maybe 25 years.|
Sep 12, 2011 7:43 AM CST
|It's probably been 10 or 15 years for us. I do know that I would NEVER be able to climb the Glen again!|
