The term ‘January thaw’ applied to the area this week when much of the snow and ice left behind by the holiday storm made its way to the gutters when temperatures warmed up to 55 degrees on Monday. One week ago, ice, frost and temperatures that dipped below zero led to frozen pipes, livestock warnings and aggressive measures to stay warm. A 2009 weather story in this issue recaps a year of below normal temperatures and above normal precipitation. A record was set in October as being the snowiest month ever, breaking the previous one month record set in March 1912. This week’s temperatures promise to be more tolerable than those the first week of the month. (Photo by Jan Rahn)
