I feel like Northern VT dodged a bullet on Saturday night, as the 6-12" of snow ended up as sleet and rain. This allowed the sap to run for us non stop from late Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon. We ended up with probably just a bit shy of 2 gallons per tap. On Sunday, my upper trees as high as 2000' ran better than my lower trees. I think there was a layer of warm air up high and it also did not cool off as much at night in the higher elevations. One of the few times being up higher has paid off at the start of the season.
Syrup filtered a bit hard on Sunday, but I think mainly because we were processing some frozen sap from about 3 weeks ago.
I am looking forward to some very short nights and long boils in the coming weeks.
