We had a much needed January thaw this last week. It got above the single digits on Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday it was in the 40's and Friday it was topped out at 60 with rain thru Saturday morning before we once again went back to below freezing Saturday. Saturday's high was 56 (at just after midnight) then by 10 am it was down to 28 with the temps slowly falling thru the day. All the warmth and rain resulted in massive thawing. My garage flooded (per usual) but the sump pump did its job. The back yard developed a stream.
And the swamp next door also had a nice babbling brook develop.
My roof was in desperate need of the warm temps as the roof hadn't dumped since at least a week before Christmas. That means it had at least 21" of snow on it as well as a half inch (at least) of freezing rain between layers of snow.
Now it is back to the reality of winter at a current temp of 7. Tuesday morning should be back in the negative numbers and then Wednesday snow is forecast.
The warm temps were much appreciated, even if they only lasted a couple of days.
