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.

 

 

 

Wednesday Morning

The woods crew traipsed for ten hours through the schmoo, checking for vacuum leaks and missed taps.

Water problem:
Could be stemming
From phlegm in spring
Box, drained spring last
Night; thing is, this
Business takes
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.
