In my last post, I wrote about the effects of cold winter temperatures on the spring morel production. We had one very cold spell in December, and then January brought three more extreme events for us. Things are looking up. Click on the graph for an enlarged view of January’s temperatures in the Knoxville area. We averaged about 10 degrees below normal for our night-time lows, with three single digit troughs. For the month, average daily temperature (31) was 7 degrees below average (38). We’ll see what February brings . . . . .
