And I am not amused. Now projected to drop to 24 F Tuesday a.m. I have a lot of apples I’m just holding my breath on. If you drive by my house early in the morning and see a crazy guy spraying down his tree with a garden hose don’t worry - it’s just me.
When we used to order supplies from Spokane we’d always ask what the weather over there was - because we could see it ourselves in a day or two. But you can keep yr. dern snow, thanks very much.
About 35 F here right now, so so far, so good. Holding my breath.
Well, it’s here, right on schedule!
That’s where the cold is.
It’s been the hottest, driest September I can remember. It does look like we finally cool off to more autumn-like temperatures next weekend, and it doesn’t look like it’ll get too warm after that, although may try to tend bit above average.
Still no precipitation of any significance, though.
you guys can kept it! too early for snow but I’ve seen that here this time of year as well.
The last time Spokane got snow in September was 1926…
At least it looks like we’re OK for tonight- I think(hope) that my remaining apples can handle 26 F, and since the snow is melting now the weight isn’t too great. I picked about 50 pounds and shook a bunch of snow off, and I don’t think anything will break. Find out in the morning. I don’t like picking apples in the snow!
But we’re looking at 25 F or 24 F the following two days (about -4 C) and I’ve got all my Calville Blanc, Rubinette, Jonagold, Prairie Spy, Pixie Crunch, Kidd’s Orange and Cox’s Orange and a lot of Libs still on the tree.
I wonder what the rest of the year will bring and it makes me nervous.
It’s so pretty. You should put up Christmas decorations
We had snow in late Sept close to 20 years ago…you’ll probably flip back to mild and forget all about it.
my father/ grandfather used to say cold temps really sweetens fall apples. most of the ol’ folk here won’t pick a fall apple without a few real good frosts to hit them 1st.
You’re giving me hope, Bro!
could be your best tasting crop yet.!
Actually, it is supposed to, which will be nice.
Mark, that’s just a few snowflakes. This is what I see when I open my front door.
Yeow! It’s a bit early for drifting. Must be pretty windy where you are?
I wouldn’t worry too much about a drier snow, but this one is wet and heavy and with the leaves and fruit still on the trees I was worried about limbs breaking, plus I want my fruit to finish ripening. We’ll see …
Cat seems displeased
Wow Chinook, I guess I should stop whining!
was 28f this morning with upper 40’s predicted during the day for the rest of the week. snow flurries at night also coming. seasons done here.
