Glad to see you haven't drowned down there, George. My former partners are
in Crowley, LA, and I was hoping they would be the only people in the state
to float away.

We experienced a storm with near tornado force winds on Labor Day and the
entire northern tier of counties in central NY suffered serious damage to
buildings and trees. Two people died at the State Fair when trees came
down. I get the feeling I mentioned this before, so forgive me if I'm
repeating myself. It wouldn't be the first time.:-) The garden came through
unscathed, and the 1700 newly planted irises needed the rain badly. I did
get lots of advice for overwintering the potted ones, for which I thank
y'all. Cheryl
