UMN AppleHouse next weekend?
posted October 21, 2017 10:05 AM   RSS

Inspired by the apple post. A little late but there are probably still some good late-season and experimental apples to be had.
AppleHouse is southwest of Minneapolis and open 10-6 daily.

This is a mile from my house. I’d love to go if the timing works out. The Arboretum proper would be a great place for a meetup too but it’s fairly expensive if you’re not a member or student. I haven’t been to theAppleHouse in a few years but it’s fun.

Do we feel lucky about the ominous weekend forecast? It's not even November yet so any snow that falls shouldn't stay long.

The weekend weather doesn't look amazing. Sunday morning might be the best bet? If we get the snow that's forecast for Friday it'll almost certainly be gone by then. As of right now, the forecast for Sunday looks dry-ish until afternoon. I'll be at the Arb from 9-10 on Sunday so I can be over at the AppleHouse at 10:30. Otherwise Saturday early afternoon would work for me. I have a pretty busy weekend, but this is so close to me that I can get there if I have a gap in my activities at the time.

I got pulled into a big rush project at work so Saturday is out. I'm about 90% sure it will be wrapped up by Sunday morning but might have to back out at the last minute. Let me know if y'all are OK with ambiguity or if I should make a note to re-post this next September.

I'm OK with ambiguity because I'm close. Do you have a time - ambiguous though it might be - in mind?

It looks like I will be working Sunday after all :(

The rest of you feel free to go without me, I can update the post with a specific time if you want, otherwise we'll plan something earlier next apple season.
