It's been warm, windy, wet even at Garden on Sherlock Street.
I put up the rain barrels in anticipation of rain in our forecast.
We got just under .10" Sunday evening.
It filled the first rain barrel half way.
Then, I read the Tuesday night forecast. Low of 22 Fahrenheit!
I don't want to take the chance that water in the hose of the rain barrel will freeze and break the spout or hose. I drained all the water out of the rain barrel giving many plants a drink and tipped the barrel upside down to drain it as much as possible.
No collecting water until we stay above freezing.
I just hope the freeze doesn't hurt the flowering tree buds.
