A serious thaw is under way--it's 55 degrees right now. The ice shelf in the middle of our alley has actually melted after persisting for about a month. Most of the snow, except for the biggest piles and the Lakeside-Clarendon Glacier, has melted. What a thaw this is. There are flash flood watches from here to Iroquois. It was 73 in Macomb, western Illinois, today. Still, it will be subfreezing again tomorrow.
