Where Has All The Snow Gone?

Warm winds, heavy rain, shrinking snow.A dark, dismal day with low clouds and frequent showers. The air so damp it felt wet even when not raining. Chilly too, despite the thaw. All the crispness and freshness of the sharp, freezing air gone, replaced by a shivery humidity. The snow going so fast it felt you could see it vanishing. Tracks and paths a mess of slush and mud and rivulets. Walking slippery and unpleasant. The other side of the Scottish winter. Home to a fire and a hit drink. A day for the indoors.
