We had a thaw last week and the ice on some of the rivers started moving and forming jams and then refroze. That has a lot of people quite worried when we get the spring thaw now these bergs will form dams.

This area along the lake shore is some of the best grape growing area in the country and the wine growers have been reporting 95% loss due to the wide temp swings. Those negative 20 nights after a couple warm days have really ruined the buds. On the other hand they are predicting a record strawberry season this year.
