You loon :)

I was out spreading grit on the driveway last night and some nutter in full running gear came slipping down the road with the ice crunching underfoot. I just watched in disbelief and went indoors for a cuppa.

How many are there? I saw two!? The show stopper was a woman letting her dog pull her while she ran along my road. As in downhill road covered with ice patches.

I had to abort my run attempt as l skidded as soon as l walked out. No man, I've only got two knees!

Really annoying isnt it! I had to put salt down outside our front door, where the snow had begun to melt yesterday, dripped onto the oavement, then frozen last night. Take heart, it cant last forever x

I walked to work early this morning in my trainers and it was not conditions for running! I had enough grip for walking but in places it was just black ice. It's not my runday today and I am hoping for some warmer weather by Thursday! Well done for staying home. A fall could result in a spell on the ic, a place no one wants to be!

Minus 13 degrees C here last night....we made the national news. I could well have more time for running this Spring as I will have fewer plants to look after. Slow thaw forecast from tomorrow so it shouldn't be too long now before postmen, bin men and the School Run Grand Prix cars reappear.

But I will really miss this iced beauty and quietness...is it me?

We didn’t even get much snow down here but the paths were very slippery on the school run. Rain is on its way and I just saw on the news the temperature will be up to 8 degrees tomorrow! Glad you’re feeling better πŸ˜€
