Chronicle (Adelaide, SA : 1895 - 1954) Saturday 8 November 1913
SNOW IN NOVEMBER.

Our Upper Sturt correspondent wrote on Tuesday:— "A very cold snap has been experienced here for two days. Early this morning the frigid atmosphere was responsible for some flakes of snow being seen to fall at Crafers. To-day has been bitterly cold — quite as cold as winter— and it is not calculated to do the fruit any good. It is likely to act as a check and be injurious to all kinds of fruit." Our Norton's Summit correspondent writes: — 'There was a light fall of snow in the hills early on Tuesday morning, though not nearly sufficient to whiten the ground. Several hailstorms were also experienced. Snow during the cherry season is a novelty not welcomed by cherry growers. Cherry and strawberry picking has started, and, provided the weather is favorable, both fruits will be plentiful. The beautiful Early Lyons are just ripening on the trees, and are a picture. So far the inclement weather has not affected the fruit, only that the demand for cherries in cold weather is not so good as when the weather is hot.
