  • The calendar says it’s January 15th, and that translates into a very cold start to our new year. It was 12 degrees below zero last night, and it is 15 degrees above zero as I write this. Mark Twain noted that he never knew water could make a river so beautiful. I could paraphrase that with “ I never knew below zero temperatures for a long period of time could make ice so hard.” Yes our creeks are almost frozen solid and running water is hard to find.
