Nick you're having a good run being further south, nice.

I just have a couple of test buckets out, one gave a litre, the other gave six litres and they're 75 ft apart.

Hope all came out of the ice storm from yesterday with minimum problems. I went for a walk around the trails this morning and there is some crown damage and limbs over the lines. Lost a Birch which missed the lower line, fire wood coming up next season. The third is showing the staining on the snow that a lot folks ask about when it enters the pails and they see what looks like pee. The tree is the matriarch of the forest and gets a special hug when she produces a few buckets a day. :)

We have 4100 taps in with 500 more to go. Looks like we'll need to get everything ready this coming weekend for the warmer weather next week.
