A brief respite.

13th February 2020

After a cloudy start it turned out to be a lovely afternoon. Winds were light, giving a bit of a respite from the stormy conditions which have dominated the weather recently. These storms have deposited a substantial amount of snow into sheltered lee aspects. Recent cornice collapse and avalanche activity was observed in Coire an Lochan. Stormy conditions expected to return tomorrow.

Riming on a signpost. Not hard to tell which way the wind has been coming from recently.
