Autumn knocks on the door


The calendar says Autumn officially arrives this Saturday. But anyone who woke up in Central Wisconsin would swear it is already here.

Record low temperatures  and frost were reported in several communities. Meteorologist Justin Loew says it may mean the end of the growing season for many tender plants and could speed up the fall colors, "We have already had an early start. I anticipate this will mean we see full color in our region by the first week in October, instead of the second week, which is typical."

At the Farmer's Market in Wausau, many shoppers checked out the fall harvest. Some vendors report fewer apples and less corn due to the drought conditions experienced this summer. But, there is still an ample supply. Shoppers say they are stocking up so they can do some canning and enjoy fruits and veggies throughout the year.
