Frost - High Speed Artic Express Comin' On Through!

Dear Folks,

In case you have not caught the weather forecasts, there is a very fast moving "artic express" storm moving in Saturday afternoon, which could bring snow - yes snow, down below 2,000 feet when the cold air and the rain all hit at the same time late Saturday into Sunday morning.  High winds are expected before the rain hits. Batten down the lawn furniture.  Then on Tuesday / Wednesday we will be in the balmy 70s!

I don't expect killing freezes with this storm and it will be difficult to cover things up because of expected high winds and rain.  If you have potted plants move them under evergreen big trees like citrus or onto the patio.
