With somewhat warmer temperatures and with the help of a low pressure system that moved in on Thursday we had an excellent sap runs this week . However, for the next two or three days winter returns and we will have another break. We think the sap runs will taper off next week and the season will come to an end after nine weeks of almost continuous action.
In spite of the possibility of snow showers the Shanty Men will operate their small wood fired evaporator and provide an educational experience for visitors. The Kettle Boys have closed for the season.
A robin appeared this morning singing aggressively to claim his territory. I hope he finds something to eat during the next three days of below season temperatures.
We will be open as usual from 10 t0 5.
