A wet hill day is better than no hill day

10th February 2023

It wasn’t a day to be venturing high into the hills with strong winds and driving horizontal rain. Sadly, yesterday’s fresh snow has now all disappeared and if any has survived, this will without doubt, get washed away with the forecasted rain later this evening and the forecasted high freezing level.
