Sugar Snow

When I was a boy living in Quebec's Eastern Townships I used to work nights boiling maple sap for a local farmer.  In late March and early April we'd get some pretty heavy falls of snow - large, wet, sticky flakes about the size of a half-dollar, which were in common use back then.

We called it "sugar snow".  The maples seemed to like it, the sap seemed to run faster and sweeter.

It's coming down now, with a vengeance.  We're gonna get 10 cm they say.  Yuck!
