A Drop of Sap Dripped

First Drips of Sap of the Year
 (the link is to the video on "Back Yard Syruping" my daily facebook post on how the maple sap season is coming along.  You should be able to see it even if you don't use facebook)

  Try    to see the public facebook pages.  You have to be a facebook user to make comments, I think, but you should be able to see the daily updates

The sugar maple test tree started dripping this afternoon, slowly at only 1 drop every 3 seconds, but it is started.  Probably will not tap more trees right away until we see if it continues, but with 50F predicted for Saturday, we may be into the season. 

Some photos from today as I took a drive up the River Road and then at the cabin and lake.   The River was partially open from Spangler's landing to Nevers Dam.
