Open Phones: No-Snow Economics

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

It's been a particularly mild winter (remember the days of Snow-mageddon?), with temperatures today reaching into the upper 50s. Are you a "man with a plow", do you sell winter hats or organize ski trips? How is the mild winter affecting your bottom line? Give us a call 212.433.WNYC, or post your story here!

Sap is running in Pond Eddy, NY! - By the Beautiful, still-natural, Upper Delaware River - 80 miles from my old rent controlled sixth floor walk-up in the West Village that I miss more than words can say!
We put the taps (spiles) in yesterday and the sap is GUSHING out! This is a strictly HOME operation - ten old sugar maples that were here on the property when I moved in - and once I learned they were SUGAR maples, I knew I could tap them - having gone to school in Vermont. So, I do - every year - and get almost 2 gallons of maple syrup - plenty enough to sweeten my tea during the year and give a few little bottles away.

Never mind the ski resorts and snowplowers. Wait until the reservoirs feeding NYC are dry. In June!

How will this light winter affect the city budget?
