The Vermont spring thaw is officially here (for now, anyway). After a long, cold, dark winter, temperatures have recently climbed well above freezing. On Wednesday, Burlington hit 50 degrees for the first time in 2015 (it was a good day).
Other good news? These lovely spring temperatures have jump-started Vermont’s famous maple season. Producers typically need temperatures in the 40s during the day and below freezing at night for optimum sap flow. Looks like we’re in good shape.
