Frigid Air!

The next 4 or 5 days are going to feature lows in the 20s and teens. Stay warm! Make sure you wrap young saplings and valued plants in burlap to help shield them from the cold. Extra mulch over the root systems will help too. Be safe and enjoy the snow tonight.

It's not uncommon for tree and shrub branches to break under snow or ice weight. Use a broom and knock snow off branches of your evergreens (especially your prize plants)
