I started lugging plants out of the garage today. Took the whole dang day. We where very lucky and were only without power and water for a day and a half. Some still have no water. Very fortunate our pipes didn't burst either. Thank you so much for asking @treefrog44 . We haven't seen that kinda weather since the 80s. It was crazy.

@txgardener I always remember having an ice storm the first week of February when I lived in Tx. The roads would be shut down until it melted the next day. Only had a few flurries of snow one year, nothing like what y'all got hit with 😞 The things we do to keep our plants alive! Glad to hear you were one of the fortunate ones 🤗
