Misty Start, Allestree Lake, Derbyshire
It wasn’t the most encouraging starts to the day. In fact it was a very uninviting morning to head out for a walk. We took the decision as the forecast for the weekend, and thru the early part of next week, sounds rather grim. Maybe snow !… now that would be a novelty, increasing this years tally from just one snowy day. This morning it was just misty, some would say foggy. It was also very damp. Despite all that, in these restricted times outdoor exercise is a must….so anticipating much worse to come from the weather gods, it was best to get that early start.
For just a short while this morning, it did look hopeful that the sun might just break through…. but that was just some false hope on my part…. still nice whilst it tried.
In the UK, it is only in fairly recent times that the Meteorological Office have ‘named’ approaching storms. The current approaching storm is called Darcy. I suppose in the keeping of records it is good to have a named event. But of course we have the media… always looking for ways to create a story….. so much so, that I do think that the hype is worse than the bite.
As always …..
Please Remember ….
Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
