Saturday afternoon

Another lovely day in the woods, but cold! 22F, but -1F when you figure in the windchill. But this is nothing to what's apparently coming... 6-10" of fresh snow tomorrow night, and then a low of -1F without the windchill, -20F with it :)

Cersei plans her next moves.

Friday off...

...though I spent a couple of hours shoveling snow this morning.

We got a couple of fresh inches, so I'm back on my short snowshoes :)

Watery sunshine, breezy and 34F.

Cersei and Tommen go to her father's wake.

Gray and still, 30F.

Arya (who has mysteriously developed a strong Irish accent, all of a sudden!?!) sails into Bravos.

Wednesday, January 28, 2015


Just the short loop today as I'm excited to get home and see if the bathroom is finished :)

30F, a light breeze and low sunshine.

Samwell fills in lots of the story so far (in case you didn't read the earlier books). And I have to say that I am very disappointed in Roy Dotrice- the accents he's using for some characters are totally different to those in the earlier books, and he's pronouncing some names differently too. It may have been a while between recordings, but my dad would have done his research and got it right! And at least the producers should have kept track... not impressed!

Snowy woods

Not a much snow as we were expecting, but the snowshoeing is excellent!

Sunny, windy and 19F.

No book today, enjoying the solitude :)

Monday, January 26, 2015


We had about an inch this morning and the real stuff seems to have just started, 21F and windy.

We should just get this walk in and get home before it gets too bad :)

Brianne searches for Sansa.

Sunday before the storm

The snow has been well trodden and is now quite icy, so it's crampons instead if snowshoes today. But we are in for what's being described as an"historic" storm tomorrow and Wednesday, with the snow measured in feet rather than inches- so I'm keeping the snowshoes close :)

Clear, crisp and 34F.

Cersi learns of her father's death.

Snowy Saturday

Holly's staples are out and she's fine :)

As promised, snow. 34F and misty rain right now. The snow is heavy and wet, but pretty good for snowshoes today.

Dorne mourns the Red Viper (started A Feast For Crows).

Back, but no picture :(

Back in the woods for the first time in almost 10 days and I forgot my phone... what a Doofenshmirtz! Holly is pretty much healed an we will go tonight or tomorrow to have her staples removed, I just couldn't wait to get out here any more.

Anyhow, cold, 34F and sunny- I'm sure you can imagine the picture that should be here :)

We're supposed to get a bunch of snow tonight, so tomorrow's picture may be mostly white...

Bright and sunny and cold, 21F, a bit icy underfoot.

What with the bathroom and the phones etc. we didn't get more than a walk around the block yesterday, so it's nice to get out and blow away the cobwebs today :)

Epilogue: Merit Frey is about to dangle.

Sunday afternoon

A balmy 28F and mostly cloudy. The snow is still good to walk on as it has been below freezing the whole time so it hadn't thawed and refrozen and gotten icy.

Sansa is accused of kissing Petyr.

Bright and crisp and very lovely, 21F.

Jon and Ghost are reunited.

Another couple of inches of snow, but it's warmed up a bit, 26F.

Thursday, January 8, 2015


It was 5F when I got up this morning, it's risen to a balmy 17F now, 4F when you figure in the wind :)

Jamie comes to rescue Tyrion.

Cold and bright, 18F and much colder with the wind! But Holly has her coat on and Musher's Wax on her feet :)

Off to the dentist this afternoon for gum surgery :(

Jon plays master at arms at Castle Black.

About an inch and a half of pretty white stuff :)

Cold and still snowing gently, 19F.

Soggy Sunday

The trails are a sodden, muddy mess today. It's 48F and there's no trace of yesterday's snow anywhere.

Jon treats with the King Beyond the Wall.

Just a dusting, and it's supposed to be 50F by 8am tomorrow. Right now light snow and 36F.

Jamie and Brienne discuss the fake Arya.
