Fog and Rain
Filed under: General
Posted by: @ 6:58 pm

Today was a low of 34 and high of 50 - cloudy and foggy all day. Despite the weather Jim turned on the vacuum at Harmons at 10:30AM before he went to the doctor for his Bell’s Palsy checkup.   By 7pm there was 1700 gallons of sap in the tanks so it turned out to be a decent sap day. Rain is supposed to start at midnite and continue for the weekend.  Usually when the rain starts the sap stops. This should get the remaining frost out of the ground.  A large storm is forecast mid next week with 5 days of freezing weather after the storm.  Jim says that fellow sapper Roger Gilles believes his woods is done running.  When he turned on the vacuum this AM there was no sap. 

Brent is going to see if we can setup a wifi hot spot at the harmon tanks this weekend.  The goal is to have a constant video feed of the sap coming into the exchanger so we can determine when to start or stop the vacuum and to also keep an eye on the collection tanks.  Quinn has a verizon hot spot that costs $22 per month that we can use.
