Did anyone get out and enjoy the weather for a bit this weekend?

I would argue its my favourite things. Sure its cold, and the roads are trash - but who needs to go anywhere anyway? But man, it was so nice to see people out and about laughing and being happy for a change. Now! I do note that we are locked down, and so should we all be out? No different to people descending on beaches in the summer - But it was still nice to see, and things looked pretty sensible in my local park.

Myself, I went to the shops for some stuff, then cleared the drive and car. This resulted in a Snowman being created on the drive.

We live at the bottom of a hill, and the road was terrible early morning. A few dare devils attempted to summit the hill. Most failed. One guy even refused help from a tricked out Land Rover. Winch and all!

I am very much not a fan of the winter at all, and the snow is literally the icing on that cake :D
Down south we had a sprinkling, which had mostly melted away by the time I got up. I guess if we had proper snow and folk knew how to deal with it, then I may enjoy it more, but no one seems to know how to drive and the salt wrecks our bikes.... roll on Spring! :D

I had to get The Mistress in for MOT. Still a lot of snow, which has now turned to ice. Was quite the battle from that respect. Otherwise, I enjoyed the walk. Now it is a right pain.

Agreed on Salt. Agreed on road sense!

Looking forward to Spring as well!
