A Shortened Walk Again and a Bit More on Voices

By: plapman, 4:34 PM GMT on February 15, 2017

Just got back from my walk with Abbey, the southerly wind is nasty. We only went half way around the winter route.
The temp at 10:00am ,while we walking, was -9.4C(15.1F) with a wind chill of -17C(1F). The wind was southeasterly at 21kmh(13mph).
