My garden took a heavy hit yesterday about 1:00 pm. 50 mph winds and 1 1/2" of rain in less than an hour.  Everything looks like it made it fairly well. But the potato vines that were 2 ft+ high were al blown over. If we don't get another bad blast I think they will recover?


  • hamman and JRJ have said thanks

Well I am just guessing, I was at work in Des Moines? Wife said she went back to work at 1:00(she always comes home for lunch) and it was just starting. She said by the time she got to work 3 miles away the street she has to cross from the parking lot to the building was 8-10" deep and running like a Spring Thaw Creek. She said a friend's husband called and said their garden was a total loss with the exceeption of the potatoes.

yep, weather is real strange this year. last week we had 40° C (I don't remember if we ever had such temperature in the past) and now it's cloudy, rainy and 15° C. in some villages around here in the Kassel county, the cellars were flooded again. terrible...

We have a saying in Utah,

 

"If you don't like the weather, just wait 5 minutes... it'll change".

 

We've had fairly high winds, but temps in the 70s and 80s yesterday and today.  Thursday it will hit 101, and 102 on Friday... that's hot enough to fry eggs on a flat rock...

Well since Kentucky became a state when Utah was still a part of Mexico, I'll defer to you.

 

I lived for a little while in Hastings, NE back in the mid 70's.  One day we had all 4 seasons before the day was over...
