Snow + Sap!

Scott and Christopher are finishing up a boil right now down at the camp.

 

Beginning late morning, we collected sap all day and by 4:30 we had close to 3/4 of a tank and a steady stream of sap.  We had to process it. 

It's been snowing lightly since around 5. 

 

The temperatures tonight are already minus 3 and dropping.

 

I looked at the NS Highway Webcams when the snow started- something I've been doing more often lately - and as usual, we had weather going on when no one else did.

 

Mind you, I bet it's pretty snowy up in the hills of Southampton where Dickinsons were tapping today. And Wentworth Ski Hill's in great shape. These Cobequid Hills are awesome for snow-lovers.
