From rain to snow

Not a pleasant night to be out of the fells. Out for an often frequented lap of Red Screes. Having left the summit at dusk in the rain, by the time I had dropped down towards Scandale and retraced my steps back up and around onto Red Screes once more it was snowing hard. A time difference of less than 30 minutes. MWIS wasn’t lying when it said rain would turn suddenly to snow. It certainly provided an atmospheric torch-lit end to my run. Now at home tending to a deep hand laceration I sustained whilst dropping off the back of Red Screes. In need of some fresh cleats.
