Some trees are leaking but not getting enough to get a sense of how well the new sap tank lifters will work. I thought it would have been a good day as it froze pretty good over night. Got to get back to the cities soon as I have a job I scheduled for today and a wake tonight. Back up on the weekend and for most of next week.
Terry, I finally chased down all the leaks and now have the same vac. all the way to the back taps. Now I have to see why the pump got so hot it was burning the oil. It has never got that hot before. I thought the pump house was on fire when I came in from the woods. Anyway, that's for another day.
