All in the company of good friends Daniel and Jack, of course.

For the evening it was to the hills; my first visit to Crich Tramway Village, home of the National Tramway Museum, this year, for an interesting meeting about some of the mid- and long-term plans of the Tramway Museum Society’s Journal, of which I am the Editor. All was going swimmingly, till we got a call from a colleague to look outside. SNOW! (I hate snow, unless I am skiing.)
