There is a weird, purple cast to the light outside this morning. Before I opened the curtains, the hints round the edge of some of the windows and through the frosted glass on the front door made me wonder if it had snowed overnight. No snow and, to be honest, no haze either. However, the sky is definitely bruised and I think we are going to be getting wet before long. I may get to test the vaunted waterproofness of my new Vaude cycle pannier earlier than expected.
