Weather: Tuesday, high in upper 40’s, overnight in 30’s; Wednesday around 40; currently 37 degrees at 11:30 pm. West wind (“Wind from the west, sap flows best”), mostly sunny. Picture perfect.
How’s It Running? Steadily since Tuesday afternoon.
Sap Sweetness: 1.2 % on Tuesday, 1.1% Wednesday. Weak indeed.
Boiling Status: Fired up at 7 pm this evening and will boil until the tanks are empty.
Music to Boil By: O Brother, Where Art Thou. It wears well on a hectic day.
Could be stemming
From phlegm in spring
Box, drained spring last
Night; thing is, this
Oodles de l’eau;
Had to slow use
Til flow returned,
Then discern if
Cleaner – Clean enough!
So much stuff goes
Wrong, of course it does.
One thought on “Up and Running”
Love the poem and that great song!!!!
