The Light at the End of the Tunnel

There was a strange and unfamiliar substance in the air this morning when I went out to cycle to the station. On closer inspection, this turned out to be daylight.

So this almost compensated for the fact that the air during my journey home this evening was largely filled with icy needles of rain. But not quite.

  6. As opposed to Dunecht? Maybe…
