I think the younger people will accept these weather changes as normal they are not.I have seen tornadoes in the winter witch never happened in my life time till now. I have seen hail fall in perfect cubes like ice cubes. I have seen snow fall with thunder and lighting. I have seen cobweb material fall from the sky and the spraying in our skies. This is not normal these are man made events I worry that our young will accept them as normal.

The cotton fields here are a mess too. They had just planted seed before that storm.
Yeah - I'm not sure how it will affect the cotton fields.
I live in the middle of a Lemon grove - - I know they lost a whole years lemon crop a while back because of freezing. It was after harvest - - but they lost the new buds.
"Outsiders" just don't know. They make fun and laugh because its desert -- like what's the big deal.

Last year i was working in a medium sized plant nursery and my employer started to invest in his tunnels these vertical thin cotton walls where you just fit the plugs into the slots and the roots grow outwards vertically. Its a lot better for business and you don't risk the chance of flooded crops as they all are hung above 5 feet off the ground and spaced out about 2-4 inches apart. The larger walls of cotton we had vegetables growing roughly 12 inches apart growing vertically. It was the first time i have ever seen an idea be brought to life and the boss managed to grow "5" times the stock. I will try and get some pictures up so you can gather a better idea of what im saying.
