Its a historic day!
I am not talking the historic turnout at Cabot’s school meeting last night (471). I am talking about the first time in my memory, which I will admit is not often historically accurate, that my maple trees are all tapped before Town Meeting Day.
The last day of tapping we made a party of it, hanging out 50 buckets with neighbors, friends and family.
So today I can sit in town meeting either relieved that I am tapped out and ready for the season, or wishing that I had not used up my Get-Out-of-Town-Meeting-card.
“Sorry, can not make it today. I am tapping”. Well, maybe next year.
