Mother Nature vs. Winter Bounty: Once again, the greenhouse prevails

Last week, while your Winter Bounty blogger was escaping in Florida, a heavy rainstorm arrived, followed by freezing temperatures. The result was predictable: thick ice on trees and power lines, fallen trees, and power outages. Then, when the melting ensued, basement floods and washed-out roadways. Just another blow from this interminable winter.

The Winter Bounty Greenhouse, which I’m beginning to think is invincible, survived both the ice and the flooding. Marsha and Logan spent some time working there a day or two after the ice storm, then took a hike up nearby Stissing Mountain, where there was still ice 2 inches thick on branches and icicles on the fire tower were sideways from the wind. The photos in the gallery show the contrast. As Marsha said, “Inside all the veggies were safe and sound and outside Mother Nature was raging.”
