Andy did a couple of hours on the climbing wall this morning, then we set out to do some shopping-which took several hours due to meeting so many people & chatting.
It transpired that friend had lost her mobile yesterday whilst we were out with the dogs. We reckoned it was probably when we were making "snow angels", so Andy & I retraced yesterdays walk to the approximate spot which was by now, a couple of inches deeper than yesterday. Worth a try, we dialled her number & lo & behold heard it ringing about 2 feet away! Dug down & retrieved it, a trifle damp but still working after more than 24 hours at -3c (& probably a lot less last night).

Looking bleak after 24 hours of blizzards, although it's so gusty, not too much is sticking. The school's closed again (transport won't go out to pick up the pupils) & tonight's dance has been postponed. Drove to Laide & back twice yesterday & most impressed with the Jimny. Nothing's an obstacle to it.
