Steaming Nostrils

February 19, 2013

After a warming trend over night and into the early morning … It’s cold outside again! I got all excited thinking we would be boiling sap, but the trees didn’t run much. What did come out is frozen. Looks like we will be waiting for the weekend warm up they say is coming.

I had great plans for today but they went out the window when the cold wave came bristling through. I like the cold, but I was not ready for today. I tried to shift gears and do other things, but my will was on the brisk wind…fleeting at best.

Coffee goes very well with cold days…especially when sipped at the kitchen table while looking outside 😮 I did get some important errands done. I, along with hundreds of other county residents, paid our real estate taxes. I know this because we were all in line together! The Treasurer’s girls did a great job and the line moved quickly…much to the delight of everyone.

I am enjoying some time off from work so hot or cold … they are great days! This roller coaster weather is just what we need for sap, but the daytime highs need to creep up just a bit more. Summing up tonight in just one word … Brrrr covers it pretty well.

I see from your photo that you are using the New England D ring style harness. Why and how does that work for you? I am still not satisfied with my harness fit but have been “told” not to bother converting them to the D-ring/jockey sticks. What are your thoughts?


PS We are still waiting on the weather for sap, too. Besides, our new evsporator arch is not quite finished and I am not very ecxited about using our little Half Pint

Carolyn, my harness is called a “side backer” harness. I don’t have a “D Ring style that you ask about. Pony or Jockey yokes and side backers take the place of a breast strap and quarter straps.
I like this style of harness, especially for logging. I am sure it is just a personal preference. A well fitted harness, no matter the style will usually help you get along just fine.
