Scott fired up the evaporator late afternoon today, and he and Matt are down there now boiling. It’s the first boil of 2019!!
Thermometers are giving him issues.
😠Three of them and none agree!
Driving rain has ended and it’s
just warm and damp out. The sap will likely run all night. Scott will make a decision at some point to shut things down til tomorrow, depending upon the rate of flow.
The weather reminds me of that
night years ago (1998) when Scott and I started boiling at around 9 pm Monday and didn’t stop til Wednesday morning. The sap ran so hard we couldn’t keep up! Maybe this run will be another good
Happy spring everyone! We’ll update
tomorrow to let you know what the situation looks like.
