Phew! That blew the cobwebs away. I knew it was windy, in fact it was so strong I struggled to open the car door and had to lean against it to prevent it slamming on my leg when I tried to get out . Even though I weighted my easel I still had to hang on with my left hand. The clouds fair whipped across the sky. It was very exhilarating even if I nearly fell in the mud twice.
I have been in ten minutes now and the sky has turned from brilliant blue to the most threatening looking sky in a long time. Could it be the promised snow???
