Last week's rain events delivered approximately 4.5 inches of the wet stuff to Napa, prompting a temporary pause to pruning activities in vineyards the length and breadth of the valley. The weather is once again sunny and is forecast to be that way for at least the next five days, so the resumption of this essential vineyard operation is already underway - except in Vinoland. It will be another couple of weeks yet until I get started, and like last year I will start with the Orange muscat vines. Meanwhile, I have a lot to keep me busy as I decided to continue with my photography classes. Smile!
