Weather Alert

Another winter weather event is headed our way. This one could surpass the size and damage of the one in December. If you have nursery/greenhouse structures be prepared to add additional bracing and keep your brooms handy for snow removal. Check to make sure that all generators are working and that you have them full of fuel. It is hard to tell when the storm will arrive- but early predictions show it hitting in full force by early afternoon. This should allow you the morning to purchase any supplies, extra fuel, food etc. Check the link above in the title line for more information about the track of this storm event. While driving back from the Turf Conference in Raleigh, I noticed that NCDOT were out in full force "salting" the highways. They are preparing for a severe weather event for the entire state.

For more information contact your local Cooperative Extension Center and ask for the Commercial Horticulture Agent.
