Winter Storm Diego

Recommended Posts

Looks like my predictions for this winter were correct. Greenville is projected to get 1” to 3” inches, which is about our yearly snowfall averages in a just a few hours. At least the air temperature will be above freezing so I doubt anything will accumulate.

We are getting 5 - 8 inches, the low for the event is 27°F, which is something we have already had here.

They are saying the coldest it will get here is 35°F but because my entire property is within a microclimate it usually stays a few degrees warmer.

Now they are naming "winter storms"? There will not be enough names left for Hurricanes!

Down here, just a lot of rain right now.  Predictions in the region are for low 40s.

Any yellowing or brown parts on the fronds were already there from the summer. It is 30 right now. The little one is a small Butia that was stepped on multiple times by little kids and dogs, this Spring I am digging it up, or if we have a warm day.

All of my seedlings (including all of my probably around 200 Sabal palmetto seedlings) are completely under the snow.

The snow is a good insulator for them. They should be fine

Here we didn’t have too much snow, just a lot of ice and rain. I am guessing that whatever landed melted pretty quick because of the rain and above freezing temperatures.

Keep an eye on your Spanish moss to make sure that the birds don’t take it lol
