Tuesday 25 March

A deceptively nice morning, but bitterly cold. Snow and ice linger in sheltered spots, and once you get into the sights of the northerly breeze it is very cold. Temperature 4C. Rain should move across from the west in the next day or so, bringing less cold weather. March is the start of spring, but the weather has been far from springlike.

Many thanks for the compliments for my pic of St Moluag's Chapel. It is possible to go inside, although you need to knock on someone's door to get the key. When I was there, I just peered through a window to take a picture like below. If you'd like to read up, please follow this link. The Chapel is still in use, I believe around Christmas Eve.



Reports are coming in of a pile-up on the Austrian A1 motorway, between Salzburg and Vienna. More than 100 vehicles are said to be involved in the smash, which is initially blamed on heavy snowfall. Austrian broadcaster ORF mentions that several ambulances and helicopters are on the scene, and that there is one fatality and several serious injuries.
