It's raining slush. I don't know whether this is semi-frozen rain or slightly thawed hail, but either way it's nasty out there. :(
And it's my day off and I wanted to get a few miles nearer Rivendell and try out my new wide-angle attachment that arrived yesterday.
Even while I've been typing this, it's now firmed up into proper hail, but it's coming down even harder.
