SUISUN VALLEY — Suisun Valley’s pace of life slows, but doesn’t halt, in the winter.
Even with vineyards and most orchards void of fruit – or even leaves – and the weather often rainy or cold, farmers have tasks to do. Trees and vines must be trimmed. Farm equipment must be repaired. Meanwhile, people still ride the valley on their bicycles, taking advantage of roads with less traffic than during the summer. Tasting rooms remain open.
Sometimes, the winter in Suisun Valley doesn’t even feel all that much like winter. This Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend could be a case in point. Though the National Weather Service has forecast cold early mornings, it predicts the afternoons should be sunny and have temperatures near 60 degrees.
That means weekend visitors to Suisun Valley should get a taste of the spring to come, even with more winter-like weather likely to return before the actual spring arrives.
