Moving South to the border of N.C. and S.C. – we must have brought winter weather with us!
This is a very rare event in this part of the country and we were here to experience it!
It started raining the day before and by nightfall – the temps had dropped to freezing!
By morning it had gone down to 26 degrees!
that is cold down here!
We knew it was coming and were prepared not to go out on that black ice!
We had flashlights and our generator if needed – but I did not want to go that far!
We were told to be careful with the garage door being ice shut!
We lost the electricity three times for short periods – the news the night before showed the electric
company bringing in some 200 personnel from the midwest to help out – and they were terrific!
Our Oleander plants – three of them – were bent right over – they survived!
Thank goodness we did not have the wind – no big trees came down or branches.
We dodged a bullet and when the sun came out – the ice melting on the trees
created a drizzle of steady raindrops.
We have had a cold wave that extends all the way South deep into Florida!
We were worried about our TOWER GARDEN – so I dug out our protective look like metal covering!
We had used this back in NVA but not with ICE!
Our experiment to grow twelve months of the year continues!
This protective covering kept the plants – green leafy – safe – the pump kept running on a timer –
and we continue to grow our vegetables even through mid-twenty degrees and ICE!
The covering is perforated – absorbed the sun in the daytime and protects the veggies
during the low temps at night and the freezing rain.
