We travelled over to Bolton today. The dark, satanic mills (standing empty) and dramatic, open moors (also empty) were all-but-obscured by the driving frozen rain (very different from both snow - which is pretty - and hail - which is dramatic). It's grim up north. But there are some great views on a clear day.
Despite a strong wind, most of the wind-turbines (a very good thing; check out Ecotricity) weren't turning today. It's a funny old world.
