They predicted this, and I just knew all day that I should get a load of wood in and get the generator ready but I have a terrible cold so I rolled the dice… of course the power went out at 8:30 last night so I got to do all of that by flashlight, in a blizzard 🤬.

Driving around this morning I saw several power lines down! I’ll be lucky to have power by tonight.
What do you mean? Controlling suckers, or are you going to try and rehab some vines?

Those are some huge vines. I seem to remember you didn’t plant them. Any idea how old they are?
The vineyard has been through 3 owners, only the first knew what they were doing. I make a trade off each season on rehab, aesthetics and fruit production to slowly bring the vineyard around.
