It's the fourth of January. I am at 54 ° North and its pouring rain. During a let up I slipped out ( literally ) without my crampons to feed the fire in the green house. The dogs were laughing at me. They have built in ones - but they didn't look all that steady either..
The good news is that four arm loads of firewood in the upstairs heater will keep the house warm and cozy for a day. Some one has been stealing our firewood lately because of the 16 stock piled cords at least three has disappeared. We suspect some one has been burning it.
Got a bajillion projects on the go - some of them weather dependent. I.E. I don't like to work outside in the rain wearing crampons unless I really have to.
Hope your getting around OK.
