Lean but not exceptional
18th January 2022
After a clear night, a weather front with cloud and some light rain crossed the area during the day. An early start mean that I was able to stay dry. The patchy snowpack was frozen and icy.
I think it is fair to say that so far this winter has not been the most wintry of winters. At the end of the month I plan to do a post about the weather this month compares to previous Januaries. However, today I thought it would be interesting to have a quick flick through some blog photos from previous lean winters to see how this winter compares. There was a reasonable amount of snow at this time last year, as well as 2020 and 2018. However, if we compare conditions now to those in mid January 2019, 2017 and 2016, we can see that we are currently in a similar position, or perhaps actually slightly ahead of those winters in terms of snow amount, see the photos below. The current lean conditions while slightly annoying are by no means exceptional.
