At least there should be no spiders in the dunny FFB - too cold !
Talking of spiders, I found a funnel web in my shed the other day...well, its a web...and its in the shape of a funnel . I just hope the owner does not live up to the name. Surely not? In Scotland in winter? It must be a garden spider with ideas above its station !
Went out at lunchtime for a run, I was the idiot in trail shoes when they have gritted all the pavements . So I ran to the park, did some hill reps in the snow, then came home, changed to road shoes and went out for a couple of miles, following the trail of grit from street to street.
I have a big writing job on at the moment but after 3 or 4 hours I start to go doolally and lose the plot . Nearly done though, maybe one more week...
Rest day today so I didn't attempt a run in it, but I did have a bit of a walk - decent layer of snow here was a good test for my Inov8 boots, which in truth rarely get chance to be used!
I don't mind the snow if its deep, but the worst bits are the side roads where the cars have polished the snow into glass !
Meanwhile down here in the land that grit forgot...I actually saw a council van out gritting the pavements today !! Last weekend I went out with a bunch of neighbours and we did it ourselves because it was sheet black ice.
He goes down near the river quite a lot to hunt, so I'm thinking he might have slid in, then managed to drag himself out ! His tail and back end were completely soaked through, but his front end was dry...he had a lucky escape anyway whatever he was up to !
Slid over to the local park myself today and did hill reps on the grassy slopes where at least there is still a depth of snow rather than ice. Pavements are not great at the moment!
Lol Adbru - you choose you moments - coldest part of the year and snow everywhere!
Ran yesterday but it was very slow, quite treacherous first thing with a thin layer of snow over ice, but it got better as the run went on. Looks like more snow tonight, which should hopefully give more traction tomorrow, but you cannot tell until you actually try it out .
My poor cat was out last night in -4temp . I had had to carry / drag him back into the house after my run during the day because he wouldn't come in, but then he created again to go out at 4am this morning, so I let him out thinking he would be back soon...and he was out until 7.30am . Came in soaked and bedraggled looking like an abandoned cat, wouldn't eat, totally frozen. So I defrosted him with a blanket and hot water bottle and after about 4hrs heat he finally came around and had his breakfast. Stupid thing, he is getting locked in tonight and that is that...!
