It looks like the season is coming to a close for us this year. We have run out of firewood and are not able keep making maple syrup this year. We went though almost 30 cord of wood this year which is all the dry firewood we have.
We were able to get 11 batches so far and we are going to finish up batch 12 as soon as possible. We still have about 2 cords of wood left so we might try and get a 13th batch out, we will see how it goes.
The weather in over the last little while has been bad to say the least. There were a few days this spring that felt just like summer and now it feels like a dreary fall day. That is one of my favorite things about being in the bush during spring, you get to see all the changes in the season first hand, without the insects.
So I have my plane tickets booked and I am ready to head up north to do some sugaring. I must admit I am a bit apprehensive as it is getting rather late in the season. I am going to be heading up on April 1st and staying until April 12th.
It looks like I am not going to be completely getting away from my work. There are a few things that I am going to have to take care of up while I am up there. The on thing that I am NOT looking forward to is Dial up internet.
I have not been able to get a hold of Bill yet, I am sure he is pulling some long hours getting ready for everything to hit. I have talked to a few people up north who say that the weather is still cold and that there is still 2 feet of snow. I really hope it stays like that, come on winter hang on.
This year I am going to be taking a lot more video and I have a new tripod to make it easier so look forward to some interesting videos.
only a few days left now.
