    Default At work looking out the window

    The sun is shining and puddles are at the end of everyone's driveways. I can't wait to get home and see if we are finally collecting some sap today. 43 degrees right now. It is really tough to look out the window and see such a beautiful day.

    4-1 we got 1.25" of rain last night today was cold and windy emptied the buckets because of the rain...the forecast is bringing better weather...some of the snow has gone down.. will tap a few trees that were snowed in...came home from fishing this eve and found 7 metal drums waiting for me to wash out for storage....a gift from a fellow sapper...the sap should really run the next few days...

    4-3...cooked all the sap we had down today to the last gallon...got a honest 8.75gal of syrup today ....had four visitors looking over the setup and shootin the bull....but the warm weather has chased the sap away...over fired the cooker at the end.... luck would have it I had a long handled shovel handy and took the fire out...some sap starting to get cloudy...finished the beer stixs which turned out good tasting....the end is near....
