Leafy greens grown year-round? Some Webster residents saying no thanks

Most farmers would look at the 146-acre site on State Road in Webster and see rows of food soaking in both sun and water in the warmer months. But those with CEA Fresh Farms see something different.

“This is going to be a very happy campus,” says Kevan Fight, CEO of CEA Fresh Farms at a public forum Wednesday evening. “And provide actually healthy, clean, really tasty, really good food if you will.”

Fight wants to take the land and build a facility for indoor agriculture, food produced under lights, year-round.

A rain, snow mix changes to all snow, winter’s chill follows

Rain and wet snow will develop from west to east across the area this morning. Temperatures being sufficiently above freezing will mean very little to no impact on your morning drive, but it will be a bit gloomy as you head out the door to work and school.

As the front moves eastward, colder air will spill into the area allowing temperatures to slowly drop into the afternoon. This will take our rain/snow mix and transition it to a period of all snow before tapering off as the band moves south into the afternoon. For all of us, this will result in our first snow of the season.
