It's getting a little chilly round these parts. I think it was below zero all the way to work today.

The other snag with driving in winter is the glare from the Sun being low in the sky. There are a couple of places on my way to work where you're looking straight into the sun. It's essentially impossible to see properly, which makes it a little tricky to say the least.

The general opinion seems to be that it's going to be a hard winter. I really don't mind that. I would much rather see some decent hard weather than 3 months of dank chills.

Bells all day

Yesterday was a busy ringing day.

We started with a nice quarter of coldstream at Duxford, conducted by yours truly.

Then on to a new tower and a new method for me - stamford at Thriplow.

This was followed by an excellent lunch at the Star in Melbourn.

Then just down the road to the Cambridge District meeting, ringing on the eight at Melbourn, followed by an excellent tea and short meeting. Just a quick diversion via Foxton on the way home to round off a busy day.

That made three new towers for me, 2 successful quarter-peal attempts, and one new method.
