A Wet Day (even by Lochaber Standards)

21st December 2014

Today was very wet and very mild. It has been raining heavily all day and at the moment is about 5 degrees on the tops . The snowpack is saturated, and is disappearing rapidly. Unsurprisingly there were not very many people on Ben Nevis today. Thankfully colder conditions are forecast for tomorrow.

Water was pouring out of the ground and snowpack all over the place.
