  • "Sometimes we get a sugar snow. This happens when rapidly changing air currents bring in a low pressure cell accompanied by a cold front after a warm day... One would think that sap flow would cease under such conditions. But because of the preceding moderate temperatures and the substantial drop in barometric pressure, the flow remains prodigious all through the night and into the next day."
