Munchie & I have not stepped outdoors yet. We’re still tending the plants & chowing down on leftover pizza.
This is the second coldest day in northern Illinois in weather history. (I guess the weatherguys have been keeping track since 1870.) Right now, it’s almost noon, & it’s -24F (-31C). That’s not counting windchill. I don’t even want to know what the windchill temperature is.
The only other colder day was Christmas Eve Day, December 24, 1983. That day, I was outside all day. Today I’m inside all day. Big big difference.
And the weather is made even more frustrating by our totally ignorant President going on about how this means climate change is “fake news.”
Anyway, I was cheered up when I went to check on the sansevierias & saw that the S. fischeri is producing winter babies. S. fischeri was one of the first sansevierias I acquired — back around 1980.

The tallest leaf is 30 inches (76cm). This plant is the great grandchild of the original. The original helps clean the air in my farmhouse down in Kentucky.

Tomorrow has to be warmer. I need to get outside. I’ve run out of chocolate.
