There has been a lot of discussion about the lack of rain in the FLX, and yes it will probably mean a smaller crop, meaning weight, but hopefully a richer one.  We at Atwater are OK.  The vines are amazingly smart and are turning their leaves away from the sun to preserve evaporation.  

We are again hearing that it's going to rain, maybe tomorrow, maybe through Saturday.  We do need a nice steady day of rain.  This will catch and save our grapes right on the "cusp" as they say.  

Have a good week all -  Ted
