Its five o'clock and its pouring down with rain, but Lord Elpus and I are in the Newfield Inn in Dunnerdale on our second pint: "Sneck Lifter" and its very tasty; perfect winter ale ~ strong and malty ~ as it's winter out there ; 7 degrees C and raining stair rods.
Darren has texted saying that it looks like he can't make it tonight and then in the same beath said snow was forecast....
So it's just the rufty tufties left then Big D!
Speaking of rufty tufties, we are to be joined tomorrow by Piglet the Wunderhund and her mistress Shirl ~ who knows a thing or two about mountains in crappy weather as she shimmied off on the second day of the Challenge (the worst weather day of the Challenge) to go climbing Munroes with the mad and bad Caburn Chamberlain.
So if Shirl's reading this it's raining and just 7 degress C and very wet: As Darrren said ~ Perfect Challenge weather!.
