Reflections on what seems like quite a short winter ………

The early winter came as normal followed by the mother of all thaws leaving us with little white by New Year.  The winter eventually returned in late January; after i had enjoyed a bit of luxury sliding in France.

February was mad stormy.  Physically and mentally challenging at times with some notable and memorable experiences along with some lovely people.

In March we were at last blessed with some good weather and conditions, but as the month progressed we could all see what was coming so a final flurry of winter activity saw me returning home to clean and hang up my gear and proceed to read, train and prep for life after CV19.  Fond memories of a short but rich winter!
