Woke this morning to the sound of rain (after frost last night) but decided to head out to the Lower Manorburn any way for a pre-work skate. Light sleet was falling. The ice was fall of air bubbles but seemed safe enough for a skate - although very noisy! Skated from just below the neck down into the gorge next to Rush Cutters. Good to have a big area to skate on but the ice seemed a bit fragile from all the air bubbles. Fresh snow on the hills will hopefully keep temps down.
