A major winter storm is bearing down on us, and I need to be in the vineyard pruning. Oh, well! Late winter storms have a serious advantage of usually not lasting very long. Additionally, we could use the moisture on the grapes.
Unlike the great Easter Freeze of 2007, the grapes are not budded, although the buds are swelling. Hopefully, the damage will be minimal, and the temperatures will stay above 30F. We can only hope for a coating of ice on them, before any colder temperatures or that the snow is 'sticky' enough to give them some cover if it goes below that temperature.
Maybe, just maybe I can get some pictures, that would be fun?
Time to mull some wine and watch the white stuff fall! Cheers
