Still feels mild outside at 6 degrees but forecast is downhill to 2 or 3 degrees this afternoon with yellow warning of snow and ice on the roads. I dashed out to the garden to plant two rhododendron cuttings I found in my Xmas bunch of chrysanthemums and the stems pushed easily into the ground. Warm ground and icy rain is the mixture needed for thundersnow so we shall see. In all the 53 years I have been tending this garden we have never had thundersnow!
