    The "S" Word is in Our Weekend Forecast!

    Yes it's early, but my favorite weather guesser here reported tonight that the 3 forecast models he uses most all agree that the Northwest NC mountains will get some snow over the weekend. He said we could even see a few snowflakes mixed in with the rain we are expected to get.

    Our predicted high for Saturday is 45, but he thinks it will be colder than that. If this is a sign of the winter to come, we are gonna be in for a wild ride.

    We haven't had a killing frost yet. We are still getting some green beans, a few maters, okra, peppers, eggplant, along with several types of greens and other cool weather veggies. A lot of it will be over this weekend if the forecast holds true.

    WOW, 70's for the highs here, lows in the upper 50's all week. Steady though, we could use some more rain...

    We hit 82 yesterday Kev!

    Jim, I set out some collards a couple of weeks ago. My peppers and maters were all pulled up two weeks ago, well the last pepper plant was. The maters were pulled up at the end of September.

    We were 83 at the airport, 3 degrees short of a new record. I'll gather the last of my warm weather stuff tomorrow. The morning forecast babe is still talking some "S" on Saturday, but not as strongly as memtioned yesterday. She tends to downplay stuff though. Maybe it's designed not to excite folks too much as they wake up?????????

    All garden stuff has been harvested quite a while back when we had threat of an early frost. Then some nice above normal weather gave us a break for harvesting crops. Light rain turned to wet snow monday morning and it looks like harvest is over. Only a couple of hours work left in the field but I don't think it will happen .
    I shot this video on the weekend when the weather was still nice and I was combining flax.

    A winter storm warning has been issued for the higher mountains in NW NC and a winter weather advsiory for the lower mountains. We still may see a few flakes mixed in with the cold rain expected Saturday.
