After a few big frosts this morning I made a last minute decision to check Poolburn for ice. Good drive up with the track better than expected after the snow. After a careful check I had a fab skate on a large area of new black ice. Still some water showing and the ice was quite varied and thin in places but well worth the effort. Ice still doesn't feel set in.
Good to meet a local farmer and have a chat.
Idaburn and Coalpit were close to a skate but need a few more mm.
