Narrowly avoided a yellow flood by stopping at Wetherby services!!

 ;D at least there are no snow warnings

Hope Ophelia keeps away and you have fun
Most walks start by finding the way out of the car park

Ahhh. But fernman. I dont have free accommodation darn sarf :/  !!

bricam - yeah but I'm in the Lake District and you're not :P

To be fair, the weather has been better than I expected. It's very mild with a sort of intermittent mizzle. Someone's chopped the tops off any hills over about 500ft though :D

Got a nice low level autumnal waterfalls walk in yesterday. Discovered some new walks not on a map for further exploration when the weather and visibility is a bit better :)
No expense spared in pursuit of a bargain ;)

I'm tempted to make a suggestion, but I'd better not, I'm a married man.

You might want to check the date on that story Lakeland....  ;)

Thanks.  Didn't spot the date on that article, which was 1st April, until you mentioned it Strider.   :D :D    Thought I hadn't seen any of those weather sheep up on the fells.     ::)

Well it was calm and sunny here (south Scotland) around 4pm, howling gales now as the remnants of H. Ophelia move in.

I trust most people saw the orange clouds and the red sun this afternoon? It was so dark at 3 p.m I needed lights on in the house.

Blame the Vulcans  ;D





Only grey skies here when the storm came in, maybe we get the dust cloud tomorrow.

Obviously, being pure of thought and deed, I have no idea what you're alluding to Ridge  ;D
