    We're in the midst of a nice run here in the middle of Western PA. After a cold night with a low of 22, the high today was 52. It's now 33 and going down to 30 tonight. Tomorrow will be a high of 47, so the run should continue.

    Correction: This is not just a *nice* run. This is a *huge* run. I built my first RO after a run like this. I had to dump several hundred gallons of sap because it went bad before I could process it.

    It's been slow around here. 120 gallons yesterday and 220 today which is a decent run. Things are finally thawing out. Sap is at 1.4% which is good for me. Syrup is probably upper end of dark.

    We had a bear in the yard tonight before dark. I ran him off but he'll be back
