Rainfall in January was comparatively low for the time of year, producing only 40.5 mm during the month.

This still leaves our pond water-levels unusually low for the end of January. Maximum daytime temperatures ranged between 0⁰ C on the 26th and 11⁰ C on the 8th and 11th.  Ponds were partly frozen from the 3rd to the 6th, and almost totally frozen from the 11th until a thaw set in on the 28th.  All ice was completely melted by the 31st.
