HADLEY, Mass. (WWLP) – Hermine is still a Post-Tropical Cyclone spinning in the Atlantic, south of New England.
So far Hermine has not been a major impact to western Massachusetts. We have gotten more cloud cover, some showers, and wind. Its the wind though that has added more to our drought. Parts of western Massachusetts continue to stay in a severe drought.
The wind from Hermine is making landscapers and garden centers work a little harder. The wind is drying out the plants. Homeowners should know that their plants could use a little extra water.
22News talked to Tom Giles, at the Hadley Garden Center, who told 22News, “I think this happens with a lot of people at their homes they don’t realize it when the sun isn’t out, but I’ll tell you these drying winds will continue to pull the moisture right out of their plants.”
Some people think you need to water more when you’re in a severe drought. Hadley Garden Centers told 22News a good soaking twice a week is more than enough.
