A northerly gale blew through during New Year's Eve, so today the weather is still blustery and very cold. The wind chill has taken the perceived temperature below zero and there is a definite raw edge to it. Brrrr.
In an effort to 'blow the cobwebs away', Our Lass and I had a wander around the local environs, well-wrapped up against the elements.
