    I got 90 gal. in the tanks this morning. Set up the evaporator and had a small boil. Snowed all day,those big snowflakes. Sugar Snow. LOL. Most likely will have to go drain it as there wont be any sap for almost a week.

    Getting ready to go and start a small fire in evaporator to thaw it out. Monday is suposed to be warmer so I may have to build small fires every day till then to stop it from freezing solid. Maybe will drain into barrel and not bother.

    I tapped a bit late this year due to travel away from the North Country, but we just put in 20 taps today and another 20 tomorrow for my family's hobby setup. It ran incredibly well today too; it was very rewarding seeing these sap bags fill up so quickly!

    Boiled what may be the last run yesterday, but the weather has been so unpredictable that we may have one more run before its done. But it really feels like this week is it. Maple trees have barely run the last couple days, and the birch have started running a bit. My syrup turned out high amber, almost golden, which was a shock for so late.
