Full buckets

Yesterday the temperatures were in the low 40s, and it was rainy and cold. Still, the buckets must be checked, and much to my delight, they were full.

This morning my opening eyes were met with the sight of snow on the ground. The weather radar shows we should be having rain. Someone has to tell those guys their rain snow line is a bit off. No sap this morning, well maybe a little from those trees that could. The little one and I will walk line before school. Truly they get upset if I check the buckets without them.

The forecast calls for warming and rain... If it reaches the 40s the sap should be still running. Forties, rainy, and windy is not what I call warm and cozy.
