We didn't have a January thaw this year, but we surely had a February one. We hit 55 degrees F two days in a row. Living on the farm you can see upclose the joys of a thaw . . . the fields lose their water and it comes rolling through to the drainage ditches. Unfortunately, one of the tiles in the field is broken, so I get a lot of water. Fortunately, the tiles in the yard were routed a oouple of years ago and the lake has subsided.
