Welcome to 2018! Bitter cold and Blizzard too

This is serious winter!!!  Daytime temperatures have been well below 20 F almost continuously since Christmas, with a high of 10 F and a wind-chill of -11 F on New Year’s Day!  Inside the high tunnel, the greens seedlings are frozen (along with everything else), but not dead.  Waiting for a January thaw, and increasing day length, to begin moving slowly again.

In a few hours a blizzard is expected to envelop us with high wind and blowing snow (10-16″ predicted).  When it clears out we can expect even colder temperatures to follow. We’ll be busy shoveling at the greenhouse, which should keep us warm and it standing.  I’ll document the scene and report back here on this early winter adventure.

  • Low: 15 °F

  • Thursday

    Thursday: Snow. The snow could be heavy at times.  High near 26. Blustery, with a north wind 16 to 25 mph, with gusts as high as 41 mph.  Chance of precipitation is 100%. New snow accumulation of 10 to 16 inches possible.
