Ouch!

And... Brrrrr!!!!

It's a hard frost that sends the machines and pickers into the field to finish up the harvest. Wet snow with temperatures at or above freezing like they are having today is something you wait out just as if it were rain. It's pretty hard to move your numbers in a favorable direction at this late date -- I would expect most of the Finger Lakes wine crop is already in the tank.

John: Melissa's contact up there, an assistant winemaker, told her that they will be accelerating their harvest because of the snow.

Indeed, it is snowing in the Finger Lakes. I'm sitting here in Hammondsport, NY at the South end of Keuka Lake and it is snowing. I don't know how those grapes that are still on the vine are feeling but my toes are certainly freezing!
