Up and Down

After a mad scramble to get ready, the weather changed quite drastically and we had a steady week of cold weather. We had thought we might get some sap this Friday and Saturday with the predicted rain and mild weather, but in the end it did not get warm enough to run. This morning it looks like we're back to winter with four inches of fresh snow!

Looking at the forecast yesterday, it appeared that it was going to stay cold this week also -- a bit nerve-racking to face losing a week of potential syrup-making in March. Today however, the report has changed entirely, and it now shows beautiful sap weather all week beginning on Tuesday. If the weather reporters only knew how much they toyed with our emotions, haha!

The roller coaster ride continues...
