Mid-January: A Journal of (Mostly) Grey Days

In this latest entry in the Whitehurst Diaries, Sharon finds small things to cherish during the "do-nothing" grey days of January. Cooking, reading, birdwatching, genealogy, and planning for the spring garden all play a part in getting through a long spell of dreary weather.

By Sharon Whitehurst

Blue skies have been rare this month. A promising sunrise has often faded into a sulk of dour grey clouds, bringing rain, sometimes in desultory dribbles, at other times in brief pounding deluges accompanied by the rattle of thunder.

Morning temperatures have not been far above freezing. When I take out cat litter each morning the ground underfoot alternates between soggy and frost-crisped depending on what the previous night has brought.

The hard freeze and snow during the last days of December left the east meadow looking sere and dun-colored, yet the verges of the lane and random patches of the lawn show a vivid green.
