Sky drama

  We experienced a temperature delta of greater than 20 degrees over the last few days. Here is the angry sky during the current temperature valley. Those vertical plumes above the distant hill are sleet/hale showers falling from the  cumulonimbus monster.

The joy of tents

The boys get their first taste of camping in a tent. We stayed at Green Acres near Edale. We had a fantastic time, although I had to tell the boys to stop being noisy about 11 hundred times.
