the first snows have gone

Sat, Oct 4, 2008

It was a horrendous morning today so it was festering in bed and reading most of the day, until the weather cleared up completely to reveal a bright white line snaking down the east face of Beinn Sgritheall. A massive torrent of water was being unleashed by the melting snows that came yesterday and left today. Cailleach a’Gheamhraidh (the old woman of winter) was just trying out her voice. She’ll be back. In the meantime, it was a calm and peaceful end to a very stormy day.
