Cloudy, rainy, high humidity but not so cold. Except phal, paphs and vandas, all others orchids are still outdoor.
yikes! my mother from new mexico texted me this morning 'hope you have less snow than buffalo' but here was sunny though very cold and no snow. didn't know they were getting anything other than standard lake effect snow. 15'?? have stepmother and sister living in angola ny which is in heavy area south of buffalo just 1/4 mile from lake, may be under glacier (just checked national weather service forecast for angola ny next 48 hrs and wind speeds low 16 to high 35 mph, and likely snow 21-31")I don't think we have any members here from Buffalo, N.Y. If we did, we might not hear from them until spring....if ever! Man...they got and are getting pounded! Over half a dozen people dead already and it's not over yet. One poor guy in his 40's died in his car, which was burried under 15 feet of snow! They didn't say if he froze to death or suffocated.
We are a hardy bunch, but no more than others! Here are some photos of Saskatoon in the summer, taken along our city's river, the South Saskatchewan. The Saskatchewan prairies are known for clear air and sunny skies - both summer and winter!I'm in love with the name Saskatoon, Saskatchewon...lovely to say like a poem. Then I
read TDT's post and looked up Saskatoon on the map. I've now decided I'm just not
hardy enough to live there. I bet it's beautiful though.
