Oh Shi*

This sucks, bad. I got home from school today, and I opened up my bog (its covered with plywood in the winter to keep it warm) and noticed steam coming out from it.  I felt the water, and it was over 80 degrees! It is currently 37 here, and I had put a pond heater in the pond to keep it warm in the winter, but its only supposed to get as high as 40. Gladly none of the plants are harmed (I hope), and I spent a while draining the pond and refilling it with cold water. I hope that the plants don't come out of dormancy too soon.
