    Sorry you had a bad season Marvel. Did your trees run good Thursday and Friday? I might have a little bit more this morning, but pretty sure that will be it.

    Hopefully after this snow we'll get a few more days. If weather holds true, should get to collect until Friday. Like others have said, turned out to be pretty good after all.

    Geoff,

    Did you use a light bulb? I haven't had too. The pan has been sweet enough and I'm glad to keep it as cool as I can between boils.
