Crop Damage
Episode Narrative High pressure settled over the Great Lakes region. The clear skies and light winds allowed overnight temperatures to fall below freezing. While not usual for mid April, it followed an exceptionally warm March which initiated the growing season some three to four weeks early. The full extent of damage, primarily stone fruits, will not be known until the end of the growing season. Early estimates were around 60% of the yield would be lost. Specific minimum readings included: 32 degrees at Retsof; 31 degrees at Fairport; 30 degrees at Mexico; 28 degrees at Calcium, Hamburg and Turin; 26 degrees at Pendleton, Attica and Clymer; 25 degrees at Springville; 23 degrees at Whitesville; and 21 degrees at Ellicottville.
