After weeks of wet, mild and muddy weather, the present weather seems to be coming straight over from Siberia according to the weather map. And outside seems to bear this out.
This morning it was blowing a gale and there was a blizzard of wet snow. But by afternoon the sun came out and the snow melted. But it is bitterly cold and there is no comfortable place to be other than by the stove with its red glow. Better get my winter coat out of the wardrobe before going into town in the morning.
