Melling Bridge at about 8:30 this morning. Frost on the railing, on the footpath and riverbank. Still crisp mornings like this are one of the few times I like winter.
Kinda cold for cycling though (I had two pairs of gloves on this morning, amongst other thermal layers), although not as cold as Monday and Tuesday were. They were actually icy.

And the novelty of crunching through frosty grass is even more fun on a bike.That said, there are times I am glad we are so close to sea level here and only have frosts and occasional icing to deal with. I probably wouldn't enjoy riding through proper ice and snow so much.

Am I allowed to tell you that I am super jealous of your COLD? Can I send you some of this unbearable heat? That'd be awesome.

Any donations of surplus heat will be gratefully accepted. Its not super cold here, but I miss summer. A friend of mine is in southern Turkey right now, and tormenting me with descriptions of temperatures in the mid 20's at 3am.

It's so weird to think that half the world is having winter right now. Cool, though :)
