We are having the same kinda winter here, i.e. weird. We had rain for Thanksgiving, but did get about 1 1/2 feet of snow since then. But a week ago it climbed through the 40'* and hit 52 Friday. Now back down to 30 right now and prolly the high for the day. Which doesn't hurt my feelings. I usually start tapping my maples the 2nd week of Feb or so. No snow cover makes for a comfortable Maple Camp. Picture from in back of my pond yesterday facing my woods. Snow almost gone.
