    3 inches of wet snow and pouring it iced before this started. Very dangerous roads and the power is flickering and trees sagging.

    Wood stove is cranking away.

    Had a very interesting day trying to get back from town.

    Looks like the Southeast is getting quite a dump. Not sure if BrotherBart and MsCrabapple still have power. If not, at least they're warm. Stay safe out there folks, the roads are bad and a lot of folks in the south are not used to driving it this stuff.

    For this week we'll push in some cherry since it will warm up, the sugar maple is up for the next cold snap, then back to the cherry for the rest of the year.
