Lots of snow and no flow

Receiving a record 18" of heavy snow, high winds and temps below freezing this past weekend, sap flow has once again come to a halt. On a positive note, we were able to spend the time fixing a leak in our flue pan. We should be ready to process sap again without anymore leakage onto the sugarhouse floor. 

We've only reached 50 degrees once this spring, so we're optimistic we still have several days of solid sap flow and more syrup. It's been a unique year and definitely the latest we've ever been making maple syrup in our 25 years. Here is the forecast for the rest of April - we're all ready for warm temperatures and no more snow!
