Westward Look! Its much warmer
Huttonian is in Lancaster today at the Uni for his annual visit. What a contrast to the Merse. We left from Duns at 730am in -4C-snowy icy roads all the weay to Ber Wick. Turned back at Foulden with road blocked by a very nasty crash at the Hutton turn off. Barely mounted Allanton bridge. Missed my train comprehensively-East Coast irritatingly on time-next train late but just got connection to Lancaster at Embra. Marooned for half an hour just south of Penrith on top of old snowy but now in balmy Lancaster 6 C and no snow. Back to Duns tomorrow, if spared. Brrrrr. Lets move West, Old man.
