    This past Saturday when I went to get spiles in Somerset County, I stopped at the Sugar Camp on Tub Mill Road, have a 30 sec. video of the sap rolling in, all 15000 taps are in and off of Thursday nights hard freeze he had got one gallon of sap per tap after the trees thawed Friday Afternoon until Saturday mourning, I stopped in around 4 pm over 24 hours after the thaw and they was still running pretty hard I forgot to ask the key question, Sugar Content?

    Weather in NW is very much like sap weather! 46 today. Still much to do as the getting ready part is as much work as the making it part. Will try to hold till mid Feb. We shall see.
    I know my apple trees look to have small buds started.
