Can it get any worse? Not really. 40 degree temps melted what little snow we had left and dumped a bunch of melt water into the swamps, lakes and streams and thinned out the ice, it looked as though we were doomed. Luckily it got rally cold again to freeze things back up in the woods but the lake ice has suddenly become a little sketchy in places. We need snow, and quite frankly we are getting sick of this same old story year after year.
