2003 Notes
September 2003: Rose Marie Nichols McGee and Keane McGee, owners of Nichols Garden Nursery, received a surprise visit from me, Fred Jacquot, while I was vacationing in Oregon. We swapped a lot of information, and they gave me the grand tour. They turned out to be just as nice as they appear in this photo.

Degree Days Chart for 2003:

I am running another Degree Days chart this season. I base it on a temperature of 50 degress Fahrenheit, and upon a starting date of May 25, which is the average last day of frost for Casper. Here it is:
