3/23/15 It’s well into another frozen round of enthusiasm-deflating sugar season doldrums. I had thought last March was the coldest I would ever see, but here it comes again on repeat. I have been told by people who should know that this freakish Arctic weather is a result of global weirding, a direct consequence of global warming. Unshakable cold caused by warming is more than my intuitive brain can absorb. As a sugarmaker it is a cruel jest of nature for which all we have to show is a paltry lump of rock-hard sap in our lower holding tanks. I can only hope this situation will burn itself out before it’s too late.
