Sugaring in Vermont.

The sap is running!!! Maple sugaring and Maple syrup is a springtime ritual in New England and a matter of pride in the State of Vermont. My coworker Bob put this video together (featuring my other co-worker Bob) of his visit to the Schroeder's Sugarworks in Colchester, VT. I think the most impressive part of this is that the Schroeder's are totally off-grid. All the power for their home and sugar house is from solar and wind sources (though there's a gas generator used occasionally).  And Dad if you're reading this, I've got two gallons of fancy here for you!
