    At three of the clock I felt the warmth of the sun on my cheek this day. Can spring be far away?

    Fell asleep on the sofa yesterday afternoon with the sun streaming in the window felt like a lovely late spring morning.

    @jdanielp small patches of frost on the towpath in Kings Knowe and Wester Hailes, otherwise totes fine. Ratho and west of Ratho heaps of frost on paths and back roads.

    Yesterday all frost gone by maybe 10 a.m, seems warmer but two days in a row where forecast has temp Two degrees above zero but fast on the ground. The headline did have minimum temp blow zero bug none of the time segments did.

  5. My garmin measured -3.4C this morning, and my fingers and the frost on the ground definitely agree with it being below 0. Despite the cold the main roads were mostly fine, with a few icy gutters to be avoided. Beautiful morning for a ride though.

    @bill thanks. There was still some frost lingered on after 9 am, but it was quite ok to cycle on. Looks like that may be the last wintry weather for a little while.

    Lots of pavement going on in the centre today, including a pickup and tractor managing to completely block the southern arm of MMW at the junction in the middle.

    Bit overcautious? Clear night but my forecast says minimum 5C.

    They've been gritting the roads around Penicuik and Roslin this evening, too. I'll keep an eye on the temperature for tomorrow; I rode most of the way home today in shorts and t-shirt.

    Just followed a mini-gritter up through Bruntsfield Links. They missed the bit right by the traffic lights at Bruntsfield Place (as they just swing round the "roundabout"). Obviously reckon it's going to be an icy one tomorrow.

    Was mild on way home from pub, IWRATS and I are now friends with the dentist on Mull. (Soon) Funny old world.

    I could have prevented a sadness but @gembo saw its necessity. These words change lives, but not necessarily for the better: Ne l'épouse pas. Attends. Laisse passer le chagrin. Vive ton deuil.

    Great happiness was had in the company of the knitter and the dentist. A transient community was formed and the universal titre of love increased.

    Despite its beauty, a sadness often follows the singing of Ae Fond Kiss, the dentist and the knitter both felt the couple not to be a couple. Let's hope the fiancé was not who we thought. The knitter was Keen on his Amber flake Rollups but I am sure we will see him again, if he remembers.

    Ae Fond Kiss would rip the heart from a fluorine atom - the maddest, most unreasonable entity I have ever encountered. It's the pause. The unbearable, the beautiful pause.

    The knitter will be summoned, as JELBERENCE is summoned, periodically and at the correct time.

    @jdanielp sections of frost on the towpath but all fine to cycle. Grass along the towpath all frosted over.

    Nippy fingers today. Minus something start but temperature rising quite quickly.

    A few tricky bits on my way in. Went slower and no sudden movements. Spring's back for the next week or so :)

    @bill thanks, I didn't lose traction even when braking to find out if I had just spotted otters! It is distinctly balmy out there now though. I even spotted a bumblebee.
