>Early reports from the north country are that the ice storm that hit much
the northeast last week had a devastating effect on sugar maples in
(and probably in VT and Quebec).
Please wait until the ice clears before making anything big of the hype coming
from news accounts of the ice storm. I've found that looking back brings on a
little different perspective.
I'm not saying it ain't bad, I just know all the motivations to make it look
bad for things such as disaster aid, federal justifications, and on and on.
Also take a look at this site <http://www.info-4-you.com> Looks like someone
has set up an ice disaster newsroom on the web.
