    I wouldn't expect much of a sap run after the big snow. The ground is frozen hard and the snow will insulate it and keep it from thawing out. With all that snow around the trees and the ground frozen, I think you would be disappointed with the amount of sap you get. I think a lot of it will be gone by the end of the month.
