Proper Winter

"There's no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothes" someone once said but today was horrible whatever you were wearing. My house is festooned with wet jackets, trousers and boots one set from this morning one from this afternoon.

Having said that the sea was magnificent in its power and majesty and there was a sheet of ice on the beach this morning that allowed me to slide like a wee kid!

1st December, High Newton, 8am, 2 degC, horizontal rain, strong N wind.

1st December, 3pm, High Newton, even windier!

The wind rendered Trooper into a pastel drawing...
