    Default OH my what a boil.

    this first boil of the year has been a train wreck. First my hood fan motor died just after hitting full boil. So I dug around and found a spare. Swapped that out. then once I got up and running again I found that for some reason now I am getting a ton of condensation where I never got condensation in the past and had water running out of the steam flue into the syrup pan. So I pitched a whole bunch of sweet. cleaned up, and then made gutters for it. FINALLY have a little syrup. hopefully this takes care of gremlins for at least a while LOL

    Yes it has. There was an ice jam downstream that let loose. Water dropped 2-3 feet, enough to let me cross with my Ranger. After all that , the sap had stopped running with the cold weather. Oh well today should be better.
