    I heard it might stick around for a while. Good. I'm not ready.

    On Saturday (1/5/19) it was warm in Potsdam and there were sugar spots all over the hood of my truck.

    With the projected warm up coming this weekend, is anybody going to tap. I checked our 15 day forecast and looks like at least a 7 day stretch of sap running. Maybe I am just getting the itch.

    Planning to sit this one out mostly because I am not ready but also because I want to see what the forecast looks like beyond this warm spell. I don't want to get started then be frozen for weeks.

    I'm basically in the same boat as Urban. It looks like this is going to go warm and stay above freezing for a few days, but then it appears the longer (less accurate) forecast after that is back down to consistently below 32. I'm sitting this one out. And it has nothing to do with the fact I still have some prep to do. Nope. Not one bit...

    The forecast changed today in the cooler direction. Still warm Sunday thru Tuesday, but only showing two nights above freezing now instead of four or five.

    I tapped yesterday (2/3) at about 3pm. Collected at about 8pm (2/4). 3 silver maple taps maybe 1/2 a gallon. 5 reds about 4 gallons, 13 sugars about 10 gallons.

    I tapped 300 on tubing on Sunday afternoon and just finished boiling 275 gallons tonight. Glad I tapped and got in on this run. Yahoo.
