Yes it is a little colder in Med ford during the winter

as stifling and the cold is not as penetrating due to the
During the recent cold wave, Bedford experienced the
lowest temperature in 24 years. It actually dropped to 10
degrees above zero. IBut the davs were britrlit and sun

a few degrees higher and the greater humiditv made the
cold more penetrating.

able to clammy fog and dreary drizzle. We'll take the
Rogue River valley climate every time, in preference to
