I may not be on this forum temporarily, so if you are expecting an acorn for any Daylily of the Day evaluations for those cultivars that I feature, rest assured I will catch up with you when my power and internet service is restored. With Hurricane Matthew approaching Florida, I expect to lose power probably Thursday evening or early Friday. We are hunkering down as are most of the locals. We are hoping for no to minimal damage.
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters, compared to what lies within us.

Take care, Becky! Hope Matthew will veer off farther to the east so that the eastern seaboard will not be affected. Crossing Fingers!

I wish. My family believes it will come on land at or near Sebastian Inlet. We are hoping that it decreases to a low category 3 or less. That is our biggest concern. We may be wishing that we had evacuated, but the roads are packed. Better not to be on the road in a hurricane. If our roof holds up, we should be ok. Thumbs up

Stay safe, Becky! It has been terrible so far, hope it weakens by the time it hits land.

One to take to heart....1 John 4 ..............................................Where there is smoke...there is fire...in most cases the smoke will kill you long before the fire consumes you. Beware of smoke screens! Freedom is not free and when those who have not paid the price or made the sacrifice...think that only they are right and entitled to speak...they bring us tryanny.

Becky. We'll all be looking forward to hearing from you as soon as this beast is past your area.

@florange Arlene, same with you. Hang in there, and I'm hoping that it goes way out to sea and doesn't do any damage.
