Now It's Wummer In SC

Submitted by Mike

Well a few months ago we had “Swinter” or summer in winter. Today we woke to “Wummer” or winter in summer. It did get down to 32 degrees Fahrenheit but I don’t think it actually went below that. I didn’t see any frozen water outside even in the concord grape vine cutting that I’m rooting. I think we dodged a bullet on this one but as I’ll mention in later posts, I don’t have anything planted yet to be bitten.

--Bonus points to anyone that can tell me where the terms "Swinter" and "Wummer" come from.
