Sugarmakers see record start to maple sugar season

This season is the earliest Bruce Bascom has ever collected sap. The mild winter, which has sometimes felt spring-like, allowed him to start in December. This past weekend, when daytime temperatures hit close to 50 degrees, he collected 2,000 gallons of sap. So far this season, he has about 8,000 gallons.
