Yesterday was a lousy day weather wise. It rained most of the day and about 3pm it started to sleet. About 4pm it turned to heavy snow on top of the ice. Ordinarily I wouldn’t care but all my apple and pear trees are in full bloom. As soon as it warms up a bit I’ll head outside and see if there is any branch damage. It will probably be a couple of days before I can tell if the blossoms were killed. Again. :(

So sorry! I know how it goes, since it happens here every year! Usually the trees manage to make it through and still produce a crop.

It did happen to my peach tree one year. A cold snap and no blooms at all and not one peach that year. I think I will get a patio dwarf! LOL!
