I could not see them either and I usually don't have any
problems. Rob's thumbnail directory addresses worked well.

Good Luck to all who are working on righting their gh, Rob
included.

Rob, you did hear the ski season has started in Colorado.
Loveland Ski area opened last weekend. How far behind can
Michigan be?

I really wish people would stop saying that... *grin*. It makes me
nervous. Contrary to popular belief, it can be quite temperate in lower
Michigan, even in the winter. Of course it can also be quite horrible.
I remember one christmas that I was outside in 70 degree weather. I
remember another late december where I had to spend the night in my
office because while I could see my car in the parking lot, I could only
see the very top.... It spent three days in that parking lot.

I have several working circuits in the greenhouse now. Still
waiting on a part for the furnace. Still pouring kerosene into the jet
engine portable heater, I have yet to lose a finger to it.

Rob's Rules: http://www.msu.edu/~halgren
1) There is always room for one more orchid
2) There is always room for two more orchids
2a. See rule 1
3) When one has insufficient credit to purchase
more orchids, obtain more credit

Hmm. I was able to see the pix from all the available links, including
Bill's original one. But then, he sent a link directly to some of us down
here, and that was no problem either.

I'm just glad they worked. Don't strain my brain with tech talk!

Yes - I know your temperate Michigan. I grew up in Temperate
Wisconsin and married in temperate Illinois. Just before we
moved here we shoveled snow out of our temperate drive that was
more than waist deep and I am not a short woman.

Good Luck Charlie Brown. They tell me the Great Pumpkin will
visit MI this year.

Hi Bill, I can see them now, sure is a lot of damage. Suppose
you have to replace all the mainframe structures. A lot of work but
glad to see the plants look stable.
The insurance companies must be crying!
Good luck to you & all the growers that experienced this divistation.
Btw...Kenni was kind enough to send me some pics along with yours.
