Working With The Weather

Fall Farm Work Requires Flexibility

Have you ever paid attention to the 10-day forecast of the weather? Maybe when you were looking ahead to a beach vacation? If you have, you know that weather forecasting is not very accurate -- even 5-days out.

Earlier this week, the forecast said we might be getting freezing temps this weekend. Now, it shows no freeze until the end of the month! Even when these first freezing temperatures do come, we know that even variations in the local topography can create micro-climates – resulting in temperature differences from one town to the next.
