3.4 acres of Rebecca’s vineyard were hit and hit hard by the sub 30′s temps this past Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Below you can see the temp data from our RanchSystems weather station. The sensor from which the data was collected is located right in the heart of a low lying swale.
Not good times. Worse than average for the county, but better than some. El Jefe at Twisted Oak is estimating that they lost 70% of their crop this year.
To estimate the losses I mapped out the affected areas on Google Earth and did some grade school geometry (turn all the complex shapes into simple ones, find the area…) and math, but it’s pretty accurate.
Maybe some of the shoots will live on and I’m overestimating. I don’t know. We can pray at least.
