  The following was submitted by Mr. W. Hoggarth of Shap (Copy Hill) to the 'British Rainfall Guides' regarding the January of 1878

   'The month began with a cold damp air and heavy fogs, followed by flying showers. High winds at day-time with flashes of fire nearly every night throughout the month. Farm work nearly all at a stand, except carting; the ground covered with a little snow at the end of the month; rivers and ponds with a surface of ice.'

His comments about individual days in the month included:  20th 'A great storm of wind and rain'  -   the 24th 'A fall of snow; lightning at 10 p.m.'  -   and then on the 26th 'Bitter cold, lightning.'
