Early walk, a bit warmer, but still nippy.
Another cool day. Not too cold, so a comfortable walk, but terminated it before it started raining.
Warmer day, no need for gloves or wooly hat.
Did start drizzling a little bit though
Problems with my FitBit Ionic forced me to factory reset, and that even didn’t work.
Basically, my Ionic will not connect to my phone after a firmware update. Before the firmware update, I can connect to setup the device, but after the firmware update completes, and the device reboots, it won’t connect.
Snow is starting to melt and it’s been drizzling, but not cold enough for the rain to freeze.
Really cold evening walking out. The snow is still mostly there, parts of it have melted, others have not. There’s a distinct lack of grit on most of the pavements, even on the steep part of the hill where I live.
Walk had to be slower than normal, with the occasional slip.
It finally snowed today. And as usual, gritters were not out in time.
The roads turned into slushy, slippery dangerous skidways, but there were no accidents fortunately.
I had to head into Chinatown to pickup my contact lenses from the opticians. While waiting for the bus, two cars got stuck trying to climb the hill (it’s a notorious hill that has caused problems in the past during snowy, icy conditions, even the police got stuck the last time it snowed heavily)
Since the cars were now blocking the road going up, I decided to go and take a different route to Chinatown, and went via the Northern Line instead of the Piccadilly Line like I was originally planning.
The pavements were slushy and there was not even any sign of gritting. The station pavements were gritted, but presumably by the station staff, and not the council.
Even while coming home and trying to climb the hill to my house, my shoes were not gripping well, and had to take small steps to make sure I wouldn’t fall.
Dangerously incompetent, that’s what my local council are.
Early morning shopping today, and while we were forecast for ice, there was none on my car. Temperature varied between 0 and 2 degC, so potentially-icy but no ice.
Did my walk today at the usual time, and was still pretty damn cold, but manageable.
Grey skies, looks like it’s going to rain….
And it did, briefly. Didn’t get too wet, though.
Went for my walk a bit earlier today, warmer but still chilly.
Went without my woolly hat and gloves for the second half of the walk.
