Start of syrup season stalls

The cold weather has put a hold on the start of maple syrup season.

Normally sap would start trickling out of the tree at about this time, but it hasn't yet.

Scott Deugo at Fulton's Sugar Bush in Pakenham tells CTV Ottawa all they can do is wait.

Trees can't be tapped right now because it could split them in the process.

The optimal temperatures for making syrup are minus-5 overnight and plus-5 during the day.

Typically, syrup season only lasts six to eight weeks.
