January marks the peak of winter cold and, by the end of the month, the daily average temperatures begin to trickle back towards sanity. Moreover, by late January, we can begin to hope for an occasional warm spell, even an above-freezing January thaw. The long, cold winter of 2008/2009 makes the occasional warm spell even more of a treat. These warm spells occur more and more frequently as the winter wanes into February and March.
