Snow Photos...Palmage in the Inland Empire

54 posts in this topic

Palmers,

I returned home from San Diego on the morning of Feb. 28th and found that it had snowed 4-5" overnight. Beaumont is located on the 10 freeway between Riverside and Palm Springs...The 'Inland Empire'. I removed the snow from my plants, finding minimal damage. Luckily, the sun was out early and it warmed up quickly. After a few hours, the plants were all upright and back to normal. I had a few palms with broken fronds but all else was well.

Without canopy, I hang on during the winter months hoping for the best. Palms common in San Diego are a challenge here. I am 3 years into this hobby and have met some of you at the So. Cal. Palm events. Eric (Beaumont Tropics) and I are the only palmers in the area. I have been a 'lurker' on PalmTalk for awhile...Hello to all, Randy

Looks like most of your selection will do fine, the B. alfredii maybe not. Keep us posted in a couple of months.

Btw, that P. dactylifera really looks solid; must have gotten it from a reputable grower.

I'm guessing it doesn't snow often there?

Hope they all pull through!

-Bret,

about as well as your Acrocomia will is my best guess. You must be looking forward to summer as much as me, did you hear about my water bill last july/august, almost $40!

Congratulations Phillips!

Off like a prom dress hocked up on cheap wine coolers you've officially launched yourself into "adulthood", I'm glad you waited for that "special" thread to strike your fancy into posting, very "Tim Tebow" of you! Not to mention in one thread you've climbed a status ring or two, must be in full "germinating" by now!

Glad the snow melted, everything seems to have rebounded solidly, with exception to the palms' owner! Ha!

Thanks Dave. I met you at the PSSC Palm Desert Palm tour. Everything is fine here, but I will feel better in another month.

Thanks for the great photos.

Keep us posted.

I can learn a lot from you.

Reading of the Inland Empire brings back memories - I went to UCR years ago.

I have seen many Bismackias in the hot tropics but never in the snow!

Pretty weird!
