Should be fine and we're not wimps :D

Today:

A cloudy start to the day with some patchy, mainly light rain. This rain will soon die away with some bright or sunny intervals breaking through these expected to set off a few slow moving and possibly thundery showers. Maximum temperature 20 °C.
Tonight:

Any showers dying out leaving a dry night with light winds. A few mist or fog patches are expected to form. These most likely along the Don and Dee valleys. Minimum temperature 10 °C.

It's raining here again so I am not convinced that I would enjoy my drive on wet roads. I'll do a weather check at 5.20 and decide then.

Rain - no show.
Dry - I'll be there.

Glad you enjoyed it Helen. The narrower roads were a trial and I'm not sure they were a total success. Now, if we could only ban ordinary motorists from them while we want to play...............!

It was quite nice finishing at the Mill Inn. Many years since I have been there. Spur-of-the-moment decisions can often be good fun!
