Tuesday 29th 27-33F, -3+1C, calm. Potential for early sunshine between the clouds. Overnight snow of less than an inch. Walked up to the woods again by yet another route and different again on the way home. I'm lucky to have so many possibilities.
Wednesday 30th 30F, cold, breezy and dark grey. Expected to remain dry but with increasing wind and hovering around freezing. There was a cool breeze as I walked to the lanes. The watery sunshine was obscured by thin cloud and provided no warmth.
The Canadian Arctic is so now warm that mosses and plants which grew 100,000 years ago in an interglacial period are being exposed. Scientists hope to be able to bring some of them back to life.
Thursday 31st 32F, dark grey with new, but light, overnight snow. Walked to the lanes. A few snow flurries during the day. Heavy shopping in the car.
