Yes, I witnessed the hail on tv from the comfort of home. It seems to be an unusually wet and cool spring this year too. We started the winter with a drought and now we are 5" over what we need and there is more rain in the forecast. The news was talking about mosquito season starting earlier this year and becoming a potential problem. Hopefully we will have a dry week next week. Here's hoping for sunshine again.
When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.
