She will cooperate when she wants. I am not giving up so easy. Had similar weather last year. Did not run because it was too warm. Then temps dropped and we had a quick large run. Hoping for the same this year. Maybe I do not want to clean up yet.

A guy has all year to clean up, why rush when the sap "might flow". We gathered 110 g. and boiled it down last night. Got hailed on for the first time boiling (outside). The sap is still running clear. Will collect, and boil again tomorrow.

Not giving up either. Here in Rhinelander woods still have some snow in places. Tapped 140 last wknd. collected 60 gals. and made 1.4 gals. syrup on tues. Friday collected another 60 gals. will boil sat. HOPING the buddy sap will hold off until next wknd. when temps are predicted to cool down.

Hey Mike, right you are about waiting to clean-up, too hot out there to do the "Clean-up" now, I'm waiting till June/July when it's cooler

STILL hope for a late run, BobU

Me too BobU. This stinks, but the weather makes the bad season, a tad bit easier to take. Hangin' in there in NW WI.
