I think my part of Loosyanna is gonna be maybe zone 10 or 11 this year. It
hasn't rained an appreciable amount in over one month and we hit 84 this
afternoon. Humidity is low and it was 60F this morning. Definitely an
atypical April. We still haven't turned the air conditioning on and the
furnace has been shut down for a month. More money to buy "stuff."
