Maybe/hopefully this is Mother Nature's last gasp of winter before spring comes?
We're having a roller coaster of a maple season. One day there's perfect maple weather, the next day it's too warm - then the following day it's too cold. We're in a balancing act between good maple weather (days above freezing and nights below freezing) and fearing that the trees will bud - which signals the end of the season!
This weekend is the Potter/Tioga Maple Weekend, so hopefully the weather will cooperate!
Something is killing my chickens. I put out a live trap and last weekend we caught an opossum in it. Then, we went away on a mini vacation this weekend (before the truly hard work sets in!) and came home to another dead chicken. I was very angry about this because I could see the beautiful green eggs that it was going to lay inside it. I set out the live trap again and caught a skunk. What a stench that created!
