Not Quite Spring

The remnants of winter are evident above and below this power dam.  This small dam near Powassan has been in place for many years and supplies electricity to the grid.

Every little bit of power helps, I suppose.

Maple Syrup Time!

A friend has a Maple Syrup operation near here.  I visited the other day to see it.  There are 1500 trees tapped and the sap is delivered by pipelines to the evaporator building. 

It is a long way from the traditional way of collecting sap to make Maple Syrup.

But the syrup tastes just as good!

Temperatures have been low enough lately that the sap won’t flow for at least another week.  But we are ready!

Bus Shelter

When the weather is cold and it takes forever for the school bus to come, a little shelter is welcome.

Today it’s nicer to stand outside and wait.

I had a very pleasant conversation with the lady of the house.  Turns out that she and her kids built it without male supervision.  It’s a bit crooked and it needs some painting again but it has stood for four years and there are quite a few more left in it.  Without doubt, it is a very cheery sight at the end of the day when the kids get off the bus.

Resurrection

Things were looking pretty bleak the other day, but look here…

It’s all good as long as the snow stays.

After long and faithful service…

Too bad, you almost made it to spring.  Again.
