I was down in the Desert yesterday and last night and a fire broke out around 10pm in Palm Springs near the Tramway road. The winds were insane so I figured this thing was going to do some damage. Somehow they were able to stop it at 40 acres with no homes lost even though the winds were easily 30-40 mph. Sorry I didn't get very good media from the incident but you get the idea. The fire started just west of Palm Canyon Road and Tramway Road. Very Densely populated with homes.






Winter can leave now... Lets try to get above 50 degrees???

What's up with fire in PS? We drove to Palm Desert yesterday. When we were even with where 111 splits off a BIG (approx 12in by 8-10in) burning ember of something landed on the road a couple of cars in front of us!! We swerved around it thankfully. It was gone before we could call 911 to report it! WTH?

Wow. We've just got tornados, hail, heavy rain and floods. Kind of fun to all get in the Big Guy's Mancave and watch the weather channel. Just 60 miles from us the state capital Jefferson City had a really bad tornado and killed 3 people. They are facing another one as I write.

Very strange driving up the mountain last night in heavy snow. At the end of May. Thank heavens it wasn't sticking.

Daffodils were great this year, just gone about a week ago. Planted them in the fall, divided among all kinds of other plants. I think they help keep the gophers away (well, I hope).

I stand corrected. Apparently tulips are mildly toxic.

Tulips aren't toxic. Daffodils are. I plant them whenever the companies ship them to me. I think it's Oct.

I was thinking more in line with the toxic tulip.

Back to the bulb planting time line ...
In the fall - when would you stick those jokers in the ground?
Anyone ??
