A bit of a lull - anticipating BIG runs!

We've had several days of no action in the sugarbush, due to temperatures below freezing. We had an anticipated a major winter storm last Thursday and Friday, but patterns changed and southern Minnesota had 6-12" of snow, while we had none. There is no snow on the ground, so when we do have a warmup, the frost should begin coming out of the ground.

The weather forecast for tomorrow and Tuesday looks promising for sap flow and making maple syrup. The best news is the major warmup this weekend, continuing for a full week! Here is a visual graph from Paul Douglas' blog on the StarTribune page. We'll be syruping!!
