March definitely came in like a lion in Napa. Extremely high winds overnight, that continued until about 11 a.m., have made a mess of Vinoland, with branches and twigs strewn all over the place. V2, who is morbidly afraid of wind, has been pinned to my side and has been loath to go outside - even for her morning ablutions. I generally don't like wind myself, it's very unsettling. One good thing, however, is that the wind has dried-up the ground a bit. It was very muddy working, tying down canes, in the Pinot grigio vines yesterday. I should have better luck today, at not getting stuck, when I start pruning the Cabernet Sauvignon vines.
So Happy St. David's Day to all - whether one is of Welsh extraction, or not.
