If you were outside last night the light from the sugar moon was exceeding bright. Evidently the moon is closer than usual to the earth. With no clouds the temperature dropped below freezing and the sap stopped running. However we collected enough sap today to produce another small batch of syrup. With snow and rain in the forecast food Friday we may not collect much more sap until Saturday which is now expected to be sunny and above freezing. Both Saturday and Sunday now look like good days to visit the sugar bush.
The jet stream still has a bulge to the South and we continue to be subjected to near winter conditions.There is some indication that the jet stream is moving further north. Lets hope so as I think we all have had enough of winter.
Our camp will be open on the weekend and during the week as well.
