How has the maple syrup season turned out this year for you guys back in maple tree regions?

folks up here in Vermont are predicting a good year, but it's off to a slow start. I don't have time for it myself yet. maybe someday

Kev, I see your location is Hoosick Falls. I grew up in Fort Ann. For the past several years I've been travelling back there in March to make some syrup. Since I no longer work full-time, I can take the time to do it. Last year wasn't too great a year, but some people on the BeeSource forum posted this year has been pretty good. I didn't go back this year. Guess I should have. :(

 The weather just won't cooperate, just got another 5 in. of snow last night, cold and windy. Going to warm up next week, should really run good then.
God bless Us all!!
