We started the drive home that afternoon and drove all night in order to beat the snow storm heading toward Ohio. The only bit of excitement along the way was a broken anti-sway bar in the rear end of the van. A quick stop at Home Depot for angle iron, hose clamps and duck tape and we were back on the road.
I've taken the rest of the week off to catch up on some work around the house. We've scraped and painted more bee boxes and I've began building a larger more efficient syrup evaporator. We are hoping to make 10 gallons or more of syrup this year. Keep checking back because I will have pictures of syrup season which starts in a few weeks.
Thank you for your prayers and thank you to the many people who checked in on Kristi and the kids while I was gone. Josh
