    If you had wind like we had last night and today, stay out of the woods until the wind lets up. Very strong gusts.
    I'll check my woods tomorrow, likely need a chainsaw for sure.

    Got the all clear from the doctors last week! No new cancer. Been busy opening up a new section of woods adding more taps and repairing damage in the other bushes. Tanks out next week then I’ll start tapping. 24/7 here I come!

    Tapped around 2,000 and sap has been flowing well. Just have to put the ro back together then I’m back in business. Tomorrow should be my first boil.
