Jan of 2011. Wonder if he got it "unthawed" yet?
Though, with the cold this week, might need to "unthaw" it again.

Let it thaw for 3 consecutive summers, If that doesnt' do it, wait until spring.

Hi, Unthawed? Do you want to have it thawed or unthawed? IMO, nothing much can be done right now. Wait for spring/summer.

I got a 2 foot small white hose (like the one used behind refrigerators for water), and a squeezie bottle. Cut a hole in the top on the bottles lid a nd push the white hose into it only about 1/2 inch. Put glue around to sea l. Pop off lid of squeezy bottle (with hose connected) and 1/2 fill with t able salt and 1/2 boiled water. Shake as best as possible. Then put lid b ack on bottle. Go to hydrant, push hose end up into faucet of hydrant. An d prop bottle upside down (like an intervense) and start squeezing mixture into hydraunt. Mix bottle frequent between squeezes to make sure salt mixt ure doesn't clog. If it does, blow out salt in hose and start again. This make take a couple tries, but it works.
