Tell the Grandchildren of Big June Blizzard
Winter came back last weekend and early Saturday morning snow rode in on the wings of a howling northeaster, piling up to a depth of five and six inches deep, with drifts in the hills of two feet. All Saturday the storm carried on and with its close came a sharp drop in temperature, officially recorded as low as 31, early Monday morning, with reliable reports of 25 and 26 from points inland.
Responsible advice is that the strawberries are “hit hard,” but there is as yet no evidence of extreme damage to the apple crop, all though all of the “experts” are speaking “off the record.”
As far as I’m concerned, we can wait a while yet for the next snowfall.
