This January has felt COLD, with a fair number of snow and ice days. So I looked up some data to see if my body was feeling it right. From the Weather Channel data, the average high for January was 41F (5C) and the average low was 25F (-4C). Per their data, we had 13 days with the HIGH below average and 14 days with the low below the average low. (The all time January records for high 74F (23C) and low -10F (-23C) were not broken.) My header was taken on January 30. The month ended with 9 of the last 10 days freezing or below. As I post this, freezing rain is falling, and Wednesday will be another slippery day for travelers. It already is in the Midwest. Airlines have already canceled many flights to Washington (the planes are grounded in places like Chicago).
