The Dali Snowblanket

bucketsThe weather has been snowy again. This seems like the most snow ever for an early April. We still have lots of snow on the ground from our big spring storm, and in the last 24 hours, we’ve gotten several more inches. I got a kick out of how the snow blanked the bucket covers, partially slid off, and drooped down like the famous Salvador Dali painting with clocks.

Alice and I spent several enjoyable hours in the sugar orchard this afternoon. We boiled until we got mostly caught up from yesterday’s gather, drew off a batch of syrup, and gathered today’s run. Even with the snow, the trees produced nicely. The weather forecast is calling for decent maple sap weather into the middle of next week too. If this keeps up, we should have a good run this year.
