Just got here--bout 12 inches melted to 6 of slush should be gone by tomorrow afternoon. Hope sap is running as this would be the last week-end. 70's next week.
Maybe I can try out my RO this week-end or tomorrow afternoon..

Default One good run?

Happy Easter. We finally had a good run this weekend, collected 234 gallons Friday and 120 on Saturday. Not spectacular, but best this year. So far I have collected about 650 gallons from 200 taps; pretty poor. We got down to 30 last night so I am hopeful for another small run today.
