The weather here has been absolutely awful, with the first real storm of Winter coming in off the Atlantic. This means the for once the Western side of the country has had it much worse than we have over here in the East. The winds have been very strong in the far North, but here in The Dales we have really only caught the tail end of the storm. However, that was quite enough for me; each time a squally shower arrived the wind picked up and the sky went black and for twenty minutes or so it was awful. I must point out that in spite of this, the lady in our exercise class who is over ninety years old, still walked up through the town from her bungalow to join in as usual.
Tea in the cafe afterwards was a jolly affair and we all received a hot mince pie with our pots of tea, courtesy of the cafe. What a nice touch.
One good thing about wearing a hearing aid (the only thing as far as I am concerned) is that when I take it out at bedtime it doesn't matter how the wind screams and the windows rattle, I can't hear a thing! More nasty weather on the way for tomorrow.
