I thought I saw a purple golf cart
But it can't be true
It's freezing here in Texas
And I'm Belize blue.

I thought I saw a purple golf cart
There it goes again so near
Must be on its way to DFW
'Cause it sure didn't slow down here.

Rick & Cheri!!
I KNOW what you mean. I'm in Corpus Christi and it's cold here too!! I thought this place was supposed to be tropical? My kitchen looks like a jungle. I had to bring in all my plants. We even had frost!!! I made a huge pot of soup and we even have a fire in the fireplace. And sadly, this cold snap even killed out new palm tree in the back yard. [Linked Image] I was trying so hard to make it look like Belize. [Linked Image] Hope the bauginvilla (sp?) and the hibiscus make it. Just planted them too!!!

Debbie Debbie, you have to learn how to protect your plants in South Texas. If you can't bring them in the house, you have bedding on hand to wrap them up, for the cold snaps. Save all old blankets and comforters, just for those days. Plastic works good, but you have to get it off, when the sun comes out, or you have steamed the plants to death.

Chloe, thanks for the tip. Since we're dipping down into below freezing for the thrid night in a row tonight, I've got the plastic all done. Hope I'm not to late for the flowering plants..... The palm tree is a gonner.......
Cheri, my family lives near you in Plano, and they were amazed at the road conditions. People were sliding back downward trying to get up one of the winding ramps over the freeway.... Bbbrrrrrr....... Steaming pot of stew last night, and chili tonight.... I too have an aloe vera from hell. I got it as a baby in New Mexico 8 years ago. I've taken baby shoots off of it, and given to my frineds, and the thing keeps growing!! It's a monster. Keep warm. [Linked Image]
