|A steam engine at the National Apple Festival, near Arendtsville PA|
This year the weather was sunny and verging on hot. Weather for this festival hits at a time of year when almost any meteorological event can occur. I’ve been to festivals when it was cold enough to snow and now I’ve been to one that felt more like July than October. I prefer the colder years, but then I always prefer colder weather to hotter temperatures.
The festival runs this upcoming weekend, too, and I’d love to go back, but I think I’ve managed to spend all the money I need to for a while. It will be safer (and cheaper) if I just don’t go again this year. But don’t let that stop anyone else!
