ADDISON COUNTY — Once upon a time, March came in like a lion and went out like a lamb, but not this year. This past March came in like a lamb and went out like a hot tamale, throwing local residents, businesses and some wildlife for a loop. And the string of 70- and 80-degree days late in March followed an unusually warm and dry winter.

“I saw some little black spots on my pants, and they were moving,” Grant said.

ADDISON COUNTY — After a banner maple syrup spring in 2011, county sugarmakers this week were facing an early end to this year’s season.

Tim Hescock of Vermont Trade Winds Farm in Shoreham said this year he tapped his 2,200 trees earlier than usual and began boiling 19 days early. As of last Friday his season was over.

On Tuesday, Hescock said the prolonged high temperatures this week likely would end any chance of more sap flowing in Addison County maples.

By Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON COUNTY — Addison County and Brandon results for Tuesday’s Republican presidential primary essentially mirrored those from around Vermont: A plurality of voters backed former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, but the GOP frontrunner failed to win the outright majority his campaign had sought in state that neighbors his own.

In Addison County and Brandon, Romney led with about 37.2 percent of the vote, trailing his statewide number of 39.8 percent. Romney won Brandon and 16 of the county’s 23 towns.
