Drastic measures 4 drastic times

Today the Highlanders decided that they really were sick of the never ending winter so wrapped up in wooly hats, winter thermals and full battle gear we got in the car.

Derek:  "I don't want to stop until it is at least 17 degrees".

Di: "OK".

2 hours later the car thermometer finally reached the optimum temperature and we could stop driving.

To finally have the sun on our backs, to squint in the sun and to enjoy some cragging without having to wear full winter clothes is well overdue.

It's the simple things in life that sometimes provide the best days.

It has obviously remained arctic up North since the fresh snow was still lying on the hills as we drove North, the roads were wet and it's another day of not having to water the hanging baskets.
