After the Big Snow
So after a flurry of activity during the first two weeks of the season, and making lots of syrup, the past week has been a dud. It's expected this time of year, just surprised with how warm the start of the season was. Also, last weekend, when I saw the forecast for this week (20's/40's), I thought for sure I'd be making syrup every night this week, but Mother Nature is fickle, and she dumped like 18" of snow on us. The snow's good for groundwater moisture and maintaining a cooler temperature in the woods, so I'll take it.
I'll make another prediction. Extended forecast shows 20/40's every day. I'm going to boil every night and make lots of syrup this next week. Probably not, but I like the idea of it :)
