Things look good for you this next month, Jim. And YES, the moisture feed is going to be a nuisance. Eventually, we'll pay the piper with snow this season with some snow I think, but this just isn't going to be anything like the last two winters. But it only takes one storm to define winter in people minds. Remember I said this: look at the big picture of winter. Many people have it in their heads that last year was terrible. And I agree, FEBRUARY WAS BRUTAL, BUT...overall the winter was ho-hum in most locations in the East with regards to temperatures prior to that. Palms suffered I think more last year due to a 1-2 punch of two winters with brutal cold outbreaks over extended periods of time. 2013-2014 was much worse here in East TN than 2014-2015, but many palms were already suffering or barely recovered. This year...should be different with the temperatures at least. Snow might be a problem still later. And spring...well spring might be FAR OFF.
