Well,
We had to address the situation of the ice in the buckets. They had about 1-2 gals., in them. Half ice that we dump on the ground and the sap, which we collected. Takes a lot of time dealing with the ice, which is worthless, but we are headed back to the low teens again Thursday after another round of heavy snow Wed.
We fired one evaporator today, and got the Saphouse in order. Going to fire the big evaporator tomarrow and make sure it is ready for the "RUN" if we get one, and empty the storage tanks so they dont freeze up and split a seam.
Thursday will be real touch and go, because we can't drain the evaporators, to prevent freezing, so we may need to light small maintainance fires in them, to keep the semi syrup from splitting the evaporator pans wide open.

I sure love your syrup, and after all your struggles this year with Mother Nature, I admire your fight.

I think I need to convince Momma that we need to take a trip up to maple syrup country some time during sugaring season. Country looks great and I think it would be interesting as heck to see/experience that. You allow women in the saphouse?? She is a southern city girl and not used to these things. (<;

Today's Featured Article - Restoration Story: 1964 JD 2010 Dsl - Part 2 - by Jim Nielsen. Despite having to disassemble the majority of my John Deere 2010's diesel engine, I was still hopeful I could leave the engine-complete with crankshaft and camshaft-in the tractor. This would make the whole engine rebuild job much easier-and much less expensive! I soon found however, that the #4 conrod bearing had disintegrated, taking with it chunks of the crankshaft journal.
