Is the sun off?

As we suspected already, the month of January has been very cloudy and not really sunny. In Reims, the sun shone twice less than average. Only 37 against 60 hours of sunshine on average.  But Reims is not the worst, Langres in Haute-Marne or Troyes in Aube, there only  had 14 hours of sunlight...
