44 degrees and it's still running slow. I collected enough to run the evaporator for a few hours before I go to work this morning. A big warm run is coming fellas try to stay ahead of the sap.

Personnally, I'm hoping the long range forcast has some major changes coming. Weather shows tonite as the only freeze for the next 10 days, and daytime temps in the 50's.

I left for the sugarhouse this morning at 9am it was 37* , I stopped at my tank to put the battery on the guzzler and the ground was as hard as stone. Its normally a muddy area , all frozen solid. The I worked down at the sugarhouse getting ready for our first tour of the year and it hit 56* , the sap was flowing ok ,nothing great except the 3/16th lines all had a nice flow going. Maybe next year Ill have changed out more of them . ended with 600 gallons total from 650 taps , not a banner run but Ill be lighting the fire tomorrow morning. Good luck all ,Allen
