Outlook

A post in which amateur meteorology is at the fore:

Shane: Look, I think we should still have a crack at it – yes, it’s meant to be wet and misty and horrible, but you know what it’s like – small break in the clouds, then fifteen minutes later we’ve the majestic mountain ahead of us and it’s tops off for top-up tan-time. What do you say?
Emma: (thinks) (frowns) Ok. Let’s do it!


And later, glorying in a haze of mountaineering achievement:

Emma: Bit wet that, wasn’t it.
Shane: (wringing water from pants) Mm.

Looks to me like you're in a home for Yetis. Or maybe the scene of a Sherlock Holmes flick.
