WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Empty isles filled the Piedmont Triad Farmers Market on Sunday and farmers blamed the weather.
Audrey Cain of Cain's Nursery said people have not been out because it is simply too cold.
Farmers said customers are not shopping for summer plants in cold temperatures which are unusual for May. They said if cloudy conditions continue it could also affect their production.
The rain is doing more than washing out customers. Some parts of I-40 looked like a lake on Sunday night.
Troopers said that drivers should slow down and watch their distance during the rainy weather.
