Default Post IKE - most all is well in our garden

Glad to hear you are safe, I've been wondering how the Texas
contingency was fairing. Sorry to hear you've lost some trees. If
you haven't already, you may want to put a bit of white glue on the
end of wound on Peace to seal it.

Gail, how about you?

Well we lost 4 trees - one in the front yard and 3 large and tall
ones in
the back wood lot.

Our roses are in bloom with the reds taking the lead. Only one
yellow is
coming into bloom and the Peace almost lost it all. A large branch
the plant to the lower main stalk just above the graft bud.

Some damage to the house, but many in town had very large (and old)
across their homes.

Hope all is going well with all of us in the group. Many along the
are still not home if one exists.


I'm glad to hear Martin did ok, although losing trees is not fun. I'm
far enough north that we didn't even get rain; we got a bit of wind
and a lot of refugees (into San Antonio - just west of me). The
devastation around Galveston is incredible and someone (the Mayor,
maybe?) described it as a third world country. Why anyone would want
to go back until there's at least power and safe water, I don't know,
but I've never been in that situation.
