No Power = No Flowers

Blogging from home as an ice storm has left the shop without power. It must have gone out a while ago, since it was 54 degrees F when I got in.

We tried to call all of our customers who had orders in for today to let them know about our situation. We can't see, and even if we could, we can't feel our fingers to design! One woman cried - a tree had fallen on her house. Two others couldn't be reached as their phones were taken out by the storm.

Most of our flowers should be OK as long as the temperature doesn't get below 35 degrees. The poinsettias, on the other hand, will not be too happy if it goes below 50. As a transplant from Mexico, ice storm is not in their vocabulary.

Guess I'll be home baking cookies today!
