<![CDATA[Maple Season Kicks Off Early]]> Mon, 20 Feb 2017 20:19:11 -0800 http://media.nbcbayarea.com/images/213*120/Maple+syrup1.JPG
A mild stretch of temperatures has jumpstarted Vermont’s signature maple sugaring season. The warm weekend sparked big sap flows across Vermont, including from the 81,000 tree taps at Runamok Maple. That producer has already started boiling the sap collected this weekend, reducing it down into sweet syrup. While the mild stretch has made for an earlier-than-typical start to the season, wintertime sap runs are not unheard of, so Runamok has been on standby, ready to capitalize on conditions.

The Chargers are moving offices and a practice facility. That means they have to pack up and transport all the tackling sleds, all the computers, all the files … basically 55 years-worth of stuff. For that they will have to hire a moving company.
