January rainfall total now up to 145 mm (1st - 19th).

Apart from the 28th, it has rained (>0.5 mm) on every day since the 13th December. Not a statistic I follow avidly but just a quick scan suggests that I have not recorded so many wet days before.

But at least it's mild!

A rare thing today - it's sunny (so far).
