Went out after visiting here yesterday and there was 4" of wet snow on the ground. :o Spent an hour shovelling the drive and sidewalk. Another inch or so fell in the afternoon. Clear and cold (for here), -6C this morning.

sawguy, if it is anything like up in Prince Rupert we'de get those cold blasts every 'whip stitch', called outflow winds coming down the mainland river valleys.
Move'n on.

White River floodwater has closed the highway north of town for several days already. (This happens usually a couple or three times a year.)  Heavy rain due this weekend ought to really force it higher.  Not looking forward to all the rain. go_away

This fall I was out to the Hargrove maple sugary and that place is huge. They must have 1000 acres tapped.  All I could see was pipes and sugar maples for miles. It's set up on crown land as the government has leases for maple syrup producers. I have an aerial photo of the area on my computer, because I was navigating my way back into a private lot.

Well in 2004 they expanded from 45,000 taps to 105,000 with 3 full time employees and 8 seasonal. At the time they were awarded an ACOA grant of $385,850.
Move'n on.

For the first time this winter we have ordinary weather now.
-18 degrees celsius and some 30 cm(1 foot) of snow. Before this it was just raining when it was supposed to be midwinter.

Going to be in the upper 30's on Saturday, nearly 40 F. It's already been quite mild down around Boston. Get your buckets out folks. ;D
Move'n on.
