A Unique Phenomenon - The Spring Sapsicle!

A unique phenomenon - the spring sapsicle! The conditions are just so close to being perfect for the sap to run with sunny skies and temperatures hovering right around the zero mark. Sapsicles occur when it is warm enough that the sap in the tree is liquid and trying to run, but freezes when it is exposed to the cold air as it drips out. Another of nature’s delights, however, we’d rather be making syrup! C’mon warmer days!!
