Cadair Idris and autumn foliage

43/52 for the group T189 alphabet challenge

The set theme was: V is for Vast

This was the other shot I snapped on my way home from the college during the week. Not the best view of Cadair Idris, but I hope this glimpse of a vast mountain will count for the theme.

Right now the sky is a solid grey, it's raining hard and the trees are thrashing about in the garden. There's a storm on it's way, according to the forecast, but it's pretty horrible out there already. :(

I know I go on a lot about the weather, and my Dad, uncharitably, claimed it was all I talked about when I phoned him. But the weather does affect my life. Things like whether I will be able to walk Brith depend on the weather. If it rains too hard for too long, the five minute walk to the college has to become a 10 minute drive because the underpass on the shortcut floods. I have to think about going into town for shopping: should I walk or drive? Can I dry the washing outside? And so on and so forth. But for an elderly housebound man, the weather was no longer of any importance.
