March 10, 2010

WEATHER: Low last night 20, high today 40, bluebird. Another in a string of true sugaring days.
TOUR OF THE SUGARBUSH, CONTINUED: Walk back through the Gulch down the slope to NORTH CONNECTION, a mainline curving around the knoll at a lower tier than Ledge Line, above a cliff draped with dirty icicles, home to porcupines. Now you’re on Dome Road near a tree called Old Suzanna, formerly tapped by the sugarmaker before us who gathered sap with his horses. She’s now in retirement.
REPORT FROM THE FIELD CREW: Snowshoes are no longer necessary for checking lines, except at the top of the Keystone lines.
QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Another perfect draw, number seven!!!”  (stay tuned)
