i think i'm running out of ways to describe snow. i'm certainly running low on words for ice. but i'll never tire of these conditions. another absolutely glorious day in the dark peak. another day of bloody hard work. another day of being thankful for snow accessories. without the spontaneous purchase of some microspikes on the way to the hills this morning, i don't think we'd have got out of the car park. maybe a little over kill on some trods but you can't put a price on the confidence they give in these now indescribable conditions.
