Hail damage on two continents

Hailstorms struck both the Finger Lakes wine region of upstate New York, and the Champagne region of France in recent days. While it sounds as though the New York hailstorm had a limited effect (but be sure to watch the video in the link above – I wouldn’t want to be in that hailstorm), the hail in Champagne caused significant destruction. So severe in fact, that Decanter reports that potentially “a third of next year’s harvest will be lost.” NEXT YEAR’S harvest. That’s some major damage to the vines.
