As those of you who have been watching the weather may have guessed, the last two days were amazing sap days! Dad said he was nearly washed away, haha! Wednesday afternoon in particular was some of the best run he's ever seen. He said if you pulled a spile out of the tree, the sap would almost jump out and splash you in the face it was running so much. It was -4°C overnight last night, so we are expecting another great day today.
It's amazing how different the season can be from year to year; on April Fools' last year, it was +24°C! The season was finished and we started our clean-up and take-down of the lines on April 2. It doesn't appear that we'll be having any weather quite that warm for a while yet this year, so we are hoping for a few more sap days before it's all over.
As usual, we will be open this weekend from 1:00pm - 5:00pm. Come out for a visit, and make the most of the beautiful spring sunshine!
