    I have heard about this bad storm and wish you the best. Use the snow and pile around pond for better insulative value. Snow really helps keep my greenhouse much wamer in exteme cold too.

    Yes @Dave 54 I did read that and it's awful. I was just hoping the rest would be ok. Hope you sure can figure out what happened that caused the others to die.
