New Year And New Month
How many times are we going to write 2012 on checks when paying the Christmas bills in 2013? With the new year and new month, some things to consider in January.
Jan 1. - New Year's Day
Jan 21 - Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
So, other than the two dates, it's pretty much a quiet month after the holidays. We even have to wait until February 3rd for the Super Bowl.
With January smack dab in the dead of winter, what kind of January will we have, weather wise? According to "The 2013 Old Farmer's Almanac" for our region January looks like this:
Average temperature: 30 degrees (.5 degrees below average east of Lake Ontario and 6 degrees higher in the west)
Jan. 1 -5 - Snow showers and cold
Jan 6 - 9 - Snowstorm then flurries and cold
Jan. 10 - 15 - A shower and mild
Jan. 16 - 19 - Snow showers, cold
Jan. 20 - 26 - Showers, mild
Jan. 27 - 31 - Sunny, then snow showers and mild
