January was a very steady month, about 12 inches of snowfall and it was spendid sleighing since before Christmas, several times the thermomitor dropped below zero but scarcely a day that it thawed at all.

Drawing out manure and odd jobs on Saturday. February started cold, but some {beame?} milder thawing so much about the middle of the month that it spoiled our good sleighing.
