The dark skies are peeling away at an earlier hour now. I was at Blackburn station this morning and it was the usual time of just before 6. It had been very light till the daylight savings adjustment kicked in. That early light is promising to reappear, with a tinge of pinkish horizon breaking through this morning. It was still colder than expected however. It barely touched 8deg this morning. Although it was a wait of less than a few minutes on the platform, the cold was palpable as I had refused to bring a coat or jumper along for such a small window of exposure. It was going to be in the lower twenties for the better part of the day so it should be good.
