Foul way to wake up

And yet more stormy weather ~ Ain't that swell?

What a way to wake up last night!
Light rain in the North Bay, round 'bout 1 AM…
I fell back asleep, but when I got up again this morning there was still a light drizzle coming down. It's still there right now...

Probably not enough rain to do any direct harm, but it may drop sugars a little, and certainly will exacerbate any mold & rot that’s out there right now.

Forecast says it should be clear and windy to help dry the fruit off, though temps in the 80's would be more helpful than the 70's...
Doppler radar shows most eveything has moved through.

I hope this doesn't turn into a nightmare for those with fruit still on the vine.

I believe you REALLY have to make HJWOW Credo in a larger font.

Otherwise - interesting stuff from a wine person in Wisconsin (how of the U.S's 1st winery).

You have another reader.

Thanks Grinder. I'll see if I can change the font without making it dominate the top of the page. My HTML skills are limited and Blogger gives you only so many tools....

Cheers,
