    The sap did not run at all today,I collected 125 gal that was in the tank and boiled that and got 3 and a half gal of syrup.It poored out today.then at 2 pm it started snowing.There was an inch of the white stuff on the ground at 4 pm when we left.Its going to drop down in the low 20s tonight.That should reset the trees and we will have to see what tomorow brings.Calling for a high of 38 tomorow.we will see.
