Fresh faced ride

dsc01977Brr it is chilly today!

All the ground that was wet and sloppy two days ago is now frozen solid and the mud has taken on the characteristics of razor blades. (glad I didn’t fall of today)

All the trees are white and the grass is like whips of ice crunching loudly under tread.

Men were out de-frosting cars, children huddling up at bus shelters on the way to school, steam rising everywhere.

I hardly dare take my eyes off the road for the volume of ice everywhere and although I don’t particularly mind falling off, it try not to make a habit of it in the road with traffic. Such as HERE

Long trousers would have been a good idea unfortunately my lovely full length trousers gave up. See HERE I’ve been in the office for over an hour now and my legs are still cold, more long tights required I think.

Take care on the road out there.
