Stronachs to Tanjil Bren
Despite the model information, was kept awake by hail, rain and wind. Then in the morning snow was settling on the tent. This was at an altitude of only 1000 metres. If I continued I would be spending a lot of time between 1100 and 1300 metres. Recheck of weather and now saw four days of worse weather to come. This was just the prelude. The thought of four successive days of negative temperatures and severe weather warnings for the wind broke my spirit. Walked out as fast as I could.
Postscript. Now looks like seven days of snow in ten for the start of November. Totally different to last year where the concern was heat and water scarcity.
