It’s cold. I’m just recovering from the flu and still feeling a bit naff, but when the pager goes off I don’t hesitate and jump into my Discovery and plough through the snow. I stop at base and we’re told that the road to the RV is closed to all bar 4×4’s. Both team Landrovers […]

I’ve made it home. Just. I drove up to Aberystwyth tonight to take Sean back for his lecture tomorrow.

With the news reporting the end of the world being nigh due to what actually amounts to not very much snow, I woke up to a light dusting covering the neighbourhood this morning. Nothing spectacular although it’s loose snow – it’s blowing around in drifts which is irritating. I took the long way around instead […]

Watching TV? Relaxing? I’m checking my kit. It’s that time of year where wet thigns don’t dry so well and so I’m making sure that my kit is all set. But I have a reason for it. This is the view of the UK according to the Met Office this evening. Those areas not in […]
