Deep Freeze 2018
The deep freeze we just got out of wreaked havoc on the woods. Yesterday, I found drop lines that had come off the spouts everywhere...at least 5% of the taps had to be fixed. Usually I'll find some during the course of the season, but almost every time I go to the woods, I'm finding drops that aren't connected...exceptionally bad year for this. If drop lines aren't connected, they're huge vacuum leaks which reduces sap production.
