It snowed for the first time in weeks.....in fact its been almost as long as the amount of time I have spent away from posting on here. This has been a very atypical winter for us. Last year we were buried under several feet of snow. Before today storm, which was only about 6 inches, we could see patches of grass. The temperatures have been much warmer than normal as well, causing maple syrup season to start early here in Maine. In fact, Tony and I may try tapping a few of our own maples this year.
