No, not the pop group.
Though rainfall hasn't been anywhere near as much as in some areas of the UK, January has been a wet month here with hardly a day without any. The land just hasn't had a chance to dry out.
The graph gives a good idea what it has been like. Unfortunately the base station of my weather station occasionally lost contact with the outside instruments. I have a feeling this has been caused by some interference from a strong local radio signal as I serviced the unit and replaced the batteries last Summer.
My home made rain gauge shows a total of 85mm (3.34 inches) for January.
January average rainfall for this area is about 52mm (2 inches).
