Writing from the woods this week where Saturday it was 12 below zero. Normally this time of year it would be in the 20’s at night and 40’s during the day which is perfect weather for maple syruping.
The day time high for the beginning of this week is projected to be 16 degrees. Even with the cold, we had two crews out all weekend tapping trees. Stephanie Balsted, Brady Clarke, Nick Kimball, Jackson Kramer, Jake Cleary, Mike Price, and Owen Swanson all braved the cold temperatures to tap more than 300 trees, bringing us so far to a grand total of 1,000 tapped trees. It looks like the weather may change for the first week in March allowing the maple season to start – almost a month behind schedule.
