We woke today to a rainy morning, but long after Sue had departed for work, the darkness subsided and so apparently did the temperature.
The rain turned to snow, giving me this rare view from the study window.
I couldn’t go out as I was waiting for a Special Delivery, but once that had arrived, and the snow had stopped, I ventured out – making the mistake of wearing trainers, which soon became waterlogged in the slush.
After slithering up to the canal towpath, I wondered whether it may have been better to travel by bike today, as the snow was melting fast.
However, the sky was clearing and the temperature was dropping. The slush was very cold as I trotted past Walton Park.
Here’s the view from Marsland Bridge. When I get time I’ll have to play with this image and make it black and white and green.
Whilst I was out, many trams passed me on their way to and fro from Altrincham. Quite a surprise as the slightest bit of bad weather often halts them (or am I being cynical?).
It would have been good to experience some nice crisp creaky snow, rather than the slush which is currently in the process of freezing. Perhaps we’ll have to go elsewhere to find that…
