    Sugarbug, my oldest daughter lived near there, in Newport News years ago. I hope you can make some syrup, I didn't think it got that cold down there that close to the ocean.
    Good luck to you, maybe the recent weather changes may help you get some sap.

    so far this year is a bust, got less than a quart of sap per tree. Last year at this time I had 2 1/2 gallon per tap. Diaphragm pump has not really helped generate any vacuum to help pull when it's a marginal day. Being on flat land I'm definitely needing a vacuum pump for next season.
