    1. Hi Dave,

      Yeah, Joe’s not too happy now! We just bought a brand new vacuum pump this year and even with that the run this week was lousy. We were very surprised because the temperatures have been perfect. It supposed to run (guess no one told Mother Nature that!). Maybe not enough water? Or maybe just not cold enough at night? In any case, this week has not been good. The week before, though, was a solid run for us. Let’s hope we see another run soon. The season goes by so fast, we’ll take what we can get! I bet our neighbors in VT had a good run–they are a little colder and have more snow.
