Snow again

It's been a while since my last post and the presence of white hills across Applecross have prompted me to update (briefly). Occassional sunny spells light up the hills brilliantly until the next band of showers are blown in on the strong northerly winds which have been gusting all night long. It looks as though we will have to go around the coast road to reach Lochcarron today.

Some history...I completed the Inverness half marathon in 1:53:04. It was snowing horizontally at the start line and we had drizzle, rain, snow and subshine with blustery winds throughout the race...almost four seasons in one day. My grateful thianks go to the boys and girls of the Territorial Army and Army Cadets who marshalled the course providing cheery hospitality and encouragement in what wereinhospitable conditions for standing around.

Andrew's birthday on Monday and we are hoping to get to Inverness to take him to the pictures and swimming and possibly a pizza or aomething similar. Thankfully, the weather looks like it's going to improve by then.

Anyway, just a short post this time...bye.
