When i was first learning English, one of the iconic phrases I had to learn was: “English weather is no toy”. Well, if that is the case, Welsh weather is more of a torture implement.
The weather in North Wales can be extremely bipolar: sunshine can be replaced by snowy blizzards, only to turn back to blue skies in a matter of an hour. But as I have found out having spent a rainy Saturday in Snowdonia, that is no reason to give up on the great outdoors.
Waking up on the Saturday morning, I faced a wall of rain that didn’t look like it was planning to let up any time this century, but what’s a bit of water coming from the sky when you have waterproofs and friends to hand?
