What a mess we found at Woolly Worm Sunday morning. Wind Saturday night tore up the festival ground; vendor goods were strewn everywhere. Our tent was in good shape, but we are so sorry for those who lost so much.
It's not the summer weather we enjoyed well into the fall, but seasonally pleasant weather is the story for the next three days. A dry front blows through Tuesday night. Today is cool and clear. Tuesday is warmer and breezier. Wednesday is breezy and cooler (but not cold). The remnants of Hurricane Willa in the Pacific will affect our weather later this week--clouds, chilly, and rain especially Friday. Even a few snowflakes may mix in.
For your reading pleasure, here is a cold and snowy RaysWeather.Com Fearless Forecast for Winter 2018-2019.
