I had to go out this morning. The sun was shinking and there was a derisory bit of snow blowing around when I left the Mansion. I returned in the teeth of a blizzard driven by an east wind, which was gusting at gale force. Of course, the blizzard stopped minutes after I was safely indoors and the sun came out again.
A neighbour’s cat strolled in to be nosy when I went out. She missed the blizzard completely. The sun was shining and the snow was off when she left to continue her rounds. Maybe they should let cats do weather forecasts.
