Monday 28 December

A very nice day, quite sunny and reasonable temperatures. Until two hours ago, we were up at the dizzying height of +7C / 45F, and the snow has been disappearing at a good pace. Just some treacherous patches of ice remaining in shadowed corners. My dad and I went for a walk in the Heathlands north of here - old readers of this blog are familiar with the imagery from there - and the ice made the going a bit slippery here and there. Before that, I went into Velp, the nearest town (my home town has no shops) for a few bits and pieces. I went out at half past eleven, and the sun reflecting on the wet road surfaces practically blinded me. As I type, the mercury has nosedived to freezing, with clear skies overhead. The moon is shining brightly, and (to which I contribute a picture a day as user Castle Town) features quite a few entries from people around Europe with similar experiences.

Tonight will be spent in front of the goggle box with the news review of the year on NOS television.

It's 34* here this morning but no snow...It is pretty but can be treacherous for sure. Linda in Washington state
