Mainers brave cold weather, biting winds for maple Sunday

KNOX, Maine — Despite chilly temperatures, strong winds and little to no sap running in central Maine, sugar shacks were full of people asking questions and filling long lines in wait to buy Maine maple syrup.

“We hope for warm days and cold nights,” said Bill Spaulding, an employee at Kinney’s Sugarhouse in Knox.

Spaulding led groups of tour groups bundled up in hats, scarves and heavy jackets around the farm’s sugarbush, which uses nearly 9,000 taps to produce syrup.

According to the National Weather Service, temperatures are expected to rise throughout the week and hover around the 40s by the weekend.
