Looks like our snow on the flat is now down to about a foot. Usually ice out on the local lakes is around the 10-15th of April. Its going to take some real doings do get er thawed by then this year. They are still driving motor homes out on Houghton lake as of yesterday. The icicles just outside my window here arn't even dripping today.

Daylight saving just ended and we can rest easy now that that extra hour of sunshine will stop fading the drapes :D :D

For the last couple of weeks and supposedly for the next week, we have had hot (24 to 28 degrees celsius)  sunny days with only a bit of rain the other night, the ground is nice and dry for dragging logs.  We moved the mill into the shade as the midday sun was just too much ;) ;)

Hope the good Lord has a nice dry winter ahead for us,  as a farmer I should want rain but I'll just sell some animals if feed runs short and keep making sawdust.

I have to wait for it to quit snowing so I can get out and start shoveling. Welcome to spring.

Still some snow here drops in the mid twenties every night and high thirties during the day. The snow in my pickup from december just melted out yesterday. What a year for maple syrup. To bad I didn't get my evaporator set up. Were still ice fishing here and trout season opens in three weeks never seen this much ice this late in the year.

First day of spring.  ::)   I even worked up a sweat this afternoon....................playing dodge ball with my son's youth group.  :D :D

Corley, has the sap been running at all up your way.  I volunteered my son to help my cousins boil maple syrup during his spring break.  Looks like it cold be a short season.

We haven't had any sap weather yet.  It might have ran for a while a couple afternoons last week but about the time it woulda got started the temp dropped off.  Sounds like it might run some this week though.

I took a drive out to the bush today in a light snow and a hard wind.

 I was just puttin along looking at the trees instead of the trail when I heard ice breaking and water splashing! A hard right, tromp on the gas and we're back on track :D  50 years of driving and I still get a rush ;D ;D
