    WOW ! IT is SOOOOOOOO cold here in north east Iowa, the sound of the words freeze when we say them and
    turn into frozen words. We can not hear anything, we have to read it ! We have not had cold like this in 30 years ! Must be that global warming they talk about. I say, bring it on, I would like to see my part of Iowa move from plant zone 4 to plant zone 3 so I could grow more plants
    and have a peach tree. and have a winter garden/
