Rain’s Coming; Growers Are Scrambling
Light rain showers can be expected in Humboldt and Del Norte Counties Friday night through Saturday.
Additional light to moderate rain will likely spread over all of northwest California on Sunday. Though the rain is not expected to be heavy…this will be the first rain of the season for many areas. Built up oil on roadways will make the roads very slick. Motorists are encouraged to be prepared for difficult driving conditions this weekend.
Cannabis farmers are scrambling to get their harvest protected. (It’s a little early for the majority of the outdoor flowers to be harvested.)
Expect to see a run on leaf blowers (used for drying the rain out of still growing buds), tarps, garbage bags and totes (for carrying cut bud), and snippers. The small towns that are already full of migrant workers hoping to be hired on for the season will get an influx of growers needing to get last minute supplies.
