Got Glazed

Glazed Cherry

Yesterday and this morning we woke up to a fresh glaze of ice on our world. Everything was sparkly. I’m very glad that this ice storm was not as bad as the ice storm of 1998 when we lost 150 acres of sugar maples. For four days in January of 1998 I listened to the trees break as we lost the upper half of our sugar bush. The weight of the ice coupled with wind ripped the forest apart. The top of Sugar Mountain was left looking like it had gotten a buzz cut. That storm destroyed great swaths of trees across the north eastern United States as well as in Canada.

    We’ll be getting a bit of Siberian air here in Western Europe during the coming days – minus 20 degrees C. The willows had already to bud after the extremely mild and rainy winter it’s been so far, birds are busy claiming territories and the phacelia is still green in the field … guess I won’t be seeding greens outside in four weeks time like last year :)
