Saturday

3rd March

The suns gone, but its not too cold - though Husband said the forecast is for more snow. I don't listen to him, though, because I can't seem to convince him that "more snow" usually refers to Scotland or Shap Fell, or the Yorkshire Moors - where yes, it usually does snow in winter.




Shap is the highest point on the M6 Motorway in Cumbria - especially famous for one of the railway's highest tracks (engines often had to be "double headed" to get over the rise - that means two engines had to be used to haul the train) there are even recordings of the sound of these engines working as they struggle up the hill.


Interesting if you are a steam engine fan, of course. Boring if you're not! LOL
