This is a 2009 pic of me in the garden during the rainy season. With Tropical Storm Debbie upon NE Florida, gardening becomes quite a challenge.

    You're not kidding! I just picked up 3 30 gal. bags of debris ripped from my neighbor's oak tree this morning, and a walk around the yard this afternoon suggests, after all the wind today, I have another 6 30 gal. bags to collect. We've had an

    This storm has the potential to destroy my 'flower' garden. Yes. Poor Tampa--You got pummeled. Word is NE Florida is going to get hammered for up to five days with Debbie.

    All I can say is we are lucky in Florida. I'm so sorry for people in Colorado & Texas and anywhere else there are fires that cannot be stopped. Even too much rain looks wonderful to me.

    Clay County has been hit hard by Debby and Black Creek in Jacksonville and elsewhere. This was a record storm in terms of rain per hour. Some folks will be out of their homes for weeks and who knows what they will return to...
