January thaws are always a mixed blessing.  Naturally the skiers don’t find as much pleasure and delight as they would with a fresh foot of powder, and as our recent thaw demonstrated, rain following cold weather can lead to icy conditions.  The furnace and wood stove get a little break, but also consider the honey bees,  They require a mild day or two each month to get outside briefly and take a “cleansing flight” to rid themselves of internal waste products – in other words, go the bathroom.
