9:25 pm Well, so much for the forecast.
The temperatures up here never got any "warmer" than plus 2 Wednesday night, and by 7 to 8 am Thursday had fallen to minus 3.
Needless to say, we didn't collect much sap at all. Now we'll see what the weekend brings...or not.
On a more positive note, we sure had a great day of schools here: Grade 8 French students and International students from Pugwash and special students who came all the way from the Annapolis Valley. Homework for the Pugwash kids: find a sugar camp close to where you live and go visit it! Maple candies as prizes for the first three.
