Fwd: A Little Set Back in the Weather

I really would not call it a set back but it is going to be cold Friday. Some areas will even see some snowfall at daybreak. Don't be alarmed this will not affect the bulbs popping up nor anything else. In fact it may even prolong maple sugaring awhile longer. This weekend is the last weekend for open houses at maple sugar houses across the state. Depending on where you are sugaring operations are opening the door to the public to see how maple syrup is made. Click here for the details  Maple Syrup Weekend
The annual Capital District Flower show is this weekend at Hudson Valley Community College just south of Troy. $10 admission for adults but kids under 15 are free. Very large display of attractive gardens along with quite a large trade show with garden and outdoor related vendors. Very easy to get to as well. Just get off the 787 exit on the Thruway head north and get on I-90 East. Get off at Rt 4 exit and head North. From the east side of the river travel up the Taconic all the way to the end and look for Rt 9 then go to rt 4 North.
Lidia Bastianich wil be doing a book signing at Adams Poughkeepsie on Thursday March 31 from 6 to 8 PM. Plan on getting in line early as She sold over 200 books when she appeared at Adams  Newburgh recently.
