    drilled in 875 in the last few days. Still waiting for the power company to put in my meter. I found out that my 4000watt generator can't handle the starting surge from the vac pump. stll managed to get 700 gallons of sap in the last 2 days. First boil coming up on friday. 25 day forcast says this is going to be a long season, lets hope so.
