There has been a trend the last few years of doing a “Dry January”. Basically, it’s not drinking any alcoholic beverages for the month of January as a kind of kick off to a healthier new year. Being in the business that we are, we of course can’t endorse Dry January (and I personally think wine should be excluded since it has many proven health benefits). For Naggiar, Dry January is an unusual occurrence when there is less rain than usual for this time of year. While not as bad as some years, we’ve definitely been having a drier January than normal up to this point- think of it as if you were doing a Dry January and had a couple of slips during the month. We obviously have some time left before the end of January- and last year, the storm door didn’t really open until the end of January- but on the whole, we are below average on rain total thus far. It remains to be seen if Dry January will turn into Dry February.

Regardless, we are hoping for the end to both types of Dry January!
