A Spoonful of Sugar

March is certainly making an entrance.  The 1-2" of  predicted snow followed by freezing rain, sleet and generalized yuck, has outdone itself so far this morning, giving us about a 5" base for the remaining precipitation to crystallize on.  At least above freezing temperatures are on the horizon, so there is light at the end of the tunnel, the season of mud  Spring is on its way!

The most exciting thing about this, is that it appears the temperatures beginning this weekend and into the extended forecast will be perfect for tapping trees and harvesting this years sap flow for syrup.  We have about 2 cups of syrup left from last season, and I am rationing to make it last.  Who wants to go and buy syrup after being spoiled for the last year?  So I am looking forward to this spoonful of sugar which will make the medicine of next few, hopefully final days of winter, go down quite nicely.
