Finally!

Ever since March 15, we've seen only dribs and drabs of sap interspersed with freezing temperatures.

 

Finally, after two days of brilliant sunshine and 5 degree temperatures, we've got enough sap for a boil today.

 

The warm-up forecast for Friday onward ought to be interesting. Scott expects that we'll continue to get some sap, but how much will be up to the trees.

 

Now our concern is that we are going into above zero temperatures for an extended period with no sub-zero temperatures predicted. That, of course, will move the trees ever closer toward budding, and the end of the season...IF the weather forecast holds. 

 

And we all know how accurate the long-range forecasts have been this year!
