The Road goes ever on and on; Down from the door where it began;
Now far ahead the Road has gone; And I must follow, if I can;
Pursuing it with eager feet; Until it joins some larger way;
Where many paths and errands met; And whither then? I cannot say.

[JRR Tolkien, Lord of the Rings]

Still Summer?

For those of you who hadn't noticed, today was 18 September.

In my version of how the seasons run (which may be marginally warped) that still counts as summer.

At 6.35 this morning, I left the house to go to work ... and found that my windscreen was completely iced up! I'm not talking about a bit of friendly white frost of the sort that the scraper will soon deal with. This was full-on chip-it-off frozen water.

Really, it's 18 September. And this is the Midlands. It's too early for frosts like that!
