Lack of festive cheer

No pictures tonight but I will sum it up in one word, grim. If you want a more descriptive description, truly grim. A variety of excuses include a 10 day lay off with something resembling flu has meant this has been the first week of running this December. Fog was laying thickly at Kirkstone Pass, rain was thundering down and the in-car temperature gauge was reading 10c! As I sloshed my way up towards the summit of Red Screes the wind picked up and was gracing gale force by the time I got blown past the trig point. Darkness is now coming early (the only sign of mid-winter) and i climbed back up from Scandale in the fading half light, which had ebbed away to darkness by the time I returned to my car.
