    I'm at just over a half a crop based on 0.25 gal./tap. I expect (hope), to get a few more runs this week.

    Well I'm going to try to get to the sugar bush this afternoon. Austin I hope your 12 inches of snow is close. My land is at the end of a mile long dead end. I will put chains on. Hope to get two boils this week then looks like pulling taps Sunday. The good thing though is I work construction and the building season is postponed. Broke but happier trying to make syrup on snowshoes and small runs.

    The snow really settled down today with the warmer temps. I do have the pump running today, nothing great but am getting some sap. I too figure / hope for 2 more boils and then guessing that will be about the end.

    Sap was running later Tuesday afternoon and then most of today. It was a pleasant surprise, didn't figure much with clouds and barely pushing 40 degrees. Thurs-Sunday "should" go like mad. I'm ready for it, assuming my wood supply holds up.

    Talked with Brad W today. We both have high hopes for the coming days but figure this will be about the end of it. Another crazy year..

    OCHTO - If you are around this weekend, perhaps I can find some time to stop by and see your operation. Or, if you want to come to mine, no problem.

    Austin, Just got back from the cabin. Thursday was nuts. Don't have enough wood left to do another big boil. Boiled Thur., Fri., and Sat. Way to end the season with a bang. If I had internet at the cabin maybe we could have got together. One of these days.

    Anyone with any news on sap flow in the winter area so far for 2019. We tapped 80 at the cabin on Sunday,
    but then we came home. Most holes were wet when drilled.

    Tapped 74 on Monday and then another 14 yesterday (all 3/16" tubing), checked around noon today, maybe 30 gallons... Don't think it got below freezing last night and is 36 degrees right now.

    Thanks for the quick reply, Austin351. Do you have good sun exposure and do you have hard or soft maple? Do you have enough slope to get decent vacuum on your 3/16?
