Friday the 13th, 2020 is a date that will be long remembered. A national emergency was declared due to the coronavirus pandemic. We headed out to the sugar woods to look at our sap tanks and were surprised to find them almost full. It was a rainy, blustery day but we started processing sap.
We made really nice syrup and by evening we had 2 barrels full (80 gallons). The day ended on a somber note as we got word that Jay Peak and Burke Mountain were closing down for the season on Saturday to help abate the spread of COVID19. Gone were our chances of getting out on the slopes, skiing on retro day, doing syrup tastings in the parking lot on tailgate day and seeing all of our winter friends one last time. Strange times indeed.
