There's still a lot of ice in the tanks. Next run? Might be tomorrow night but it depends upon which weather forecast is right. Snow, then ice pellets, then rain and temperatures not going below freezing tomorrow night is what they agree on. As usual, we have no idea what will happen!
But it's a better spring than last year! Bring it on.
