After mentioning a line fault with the telephone, we went off for five days to Budapest, had a great time. Missed a big storm, which brought a tree down and the telephone line up the valley. Restored before we got home, only to go down again the day after our homecoming, followed by another storm which took out the electric cable. We still had the benefit of our rayburn and woodburner stove for hating and cooking.
All got fixed. Strange weather over the last two days, heavy rain followed by clear skys and overnight frost, more rain which turned to sleet and snow, and now it's below freezing.
