Waiting for Winter

I don't like driving in snow, I don't like walking into town in the snow but I do like the hills in snow.  After the last two years I was planning to get out in the cold and maybe do a spot of wild camping.  My Microspikes proved their worth last year making dangerous paths passable with ease.

The weather so far has been a let down, in some ways the last two years have been an exception rather than the rule.  For the lower levels in England it's been back to normal, but the higher hills have also lacked any snow.  Maybe I'll have to venture to the real north and hit the hills in Scotland, though I've heard they are a bit steep...

Judging by the clearance prices on sledges, snow shovels and de-icer I'm guessing the supermarkets have also over estimated the vagaries of the UK weather.  The only thing you can guarantee about the weather is that it will be wrong!
