    Less water than last year (obviously) and I'd say less than the year prior. But still enough water. The roller coaster thermometer has been tricky. With all of the freeze-thaws going on, I don't think the ducks have a chance to settle back in before they get pushed out by ice again. With the current forecast, I would venture to say that much of the backwaters will be frozen this weekend.
