    I make em.

    Have a formula based on day high, low the previous night, and previous 60 hour temp trend. Works pretty good for early in the year - but breaks down a bit once the REALLY heavy flow comes later on. Still trying to tweak it. I think it has something to do with the sun at the end. Need some way to plug in solar radiation lol.

    This is the results from last year -

    We are planning to start getting ready this weekend. Our new RO needs to get plumbed, the releasers need to be put back together and taken out to the woods, the evaporator needs to be put back together and a million other odds and ends. The plan is to start tapping on Sunday to get a headstart so we can be ready when the real start happens. Since we need about 5 days to get tapped and the lines checked, primarily on weekends, we can't risk not being ready in time.

    Hi Turkey John.
    I make them myself based on the two-week temperature forecasts from a couple models I get online. Seemed to work pretty good last year. Helped me to know when I had to pick up and when I could leave the buckets out for the night. As with most maple syrup things though, nothing is every really for certain

    Long Range forecast for Ottawa. Full week of sap weather starting next Sat. Will be putting out the taps next Sat am (or maybe Friday evening). Looking forward to boiling in my new sugar shack (I made expansions this year. :-) )
