Here in the Coastal Sand Hills we also are experiencing 2 or 3 days of snow -- and it is piling up on everything -- bonsai included.  This is after single digits and freezing rain and sleet.  Last winter we lost trees and I expect that this spring there is be many tears and only memories.  OH for the normal 60f/38f and sun -- where is the sun.  

OK who moved from the snowy, bitterly cold North and brought all this with them??  Come on fess up.

OH for the normal

This IS the new normal, I'm afraid.

Kevin . . . won't lose anything from this event.  Last week, however, everything was solid as a rock for almost 10 days.  I had about 15 trees inside, but some of what was left  out may have been damaged.  All of my crape myrtles are (and were) out. There's only so much I can lug in and out these days.

if i were in your neighborhood (or even a reasonable distance) i would have come over to help you tote... which is also a service that the Arbor Arts Collective is beginning to offer some of the senior members of the Milwaukee Bonsai Society...

it would be cool if the young 'uns of every club would offer to help out thier elders with luggin' & totin'...
it would be a small repayment for the undoubtedly invaluable help and advice provided by the elders...

There's a "young" 'un near me that would help, but that's all assuming I plan ahead. HA!

I was born in New York....That's why I moved to Washington state, where snow used to be where your drove to the mountains to see....hundreds of inches of accumulation. But that was back then and this year, well I plan on watering with a thimble ( if they let us)...extremes seem to be the new norm.

Jim fingers crossed all comes back OK
