WEATHER broke my two garlic plants over.

I feel less sympathy. You have easy access to a multitude of proper bbq year round - Coopers, Elgin, Salt Lick, Iron Works - to soothe all your problems away.

Quite a line of storms rolled through last night - heavy downpours, amazing lightning display, and a tornado warning based on Doppler rotation. Lots of energy in that system!

Drat that! How far along are they? What kind are you growing, Worth?
I have had nearly mature plants (hardnecks) that were bowed down from heavy wind and rain but they did not break. Early in the season, I'd expect them to come back from almost anything.

Our next storm is coming tonight, what a messed up forecast "special weather" of course Just name every form of precipitation in a long list.... Extended period of freezing rain is part of it, but I don't know if we'll see it or if it'll change to rain during the night. Temps will be close to freezing for a couple of days but it looks like a nice Easter weekend.

Bent over at the neck some sort of hard neck.

We're in the middle of an ice storm here. Minus 1 C and the rain is just pelting down.. the trees have loaded up a lot since I woke up this morning and the power lines are getting some long drips on them now too. I only hope that it goes above freezing this afternoon, because otherwise they will be getting a dump of snow and ice pellets on top of the ice tomorrow. Bleah April.
