Hopefully, everything is returning to normal for most in the Lake District whilst further north at Cockermouth and Workington, things will take a little longer to straighten out. We walked a couple of the smaller Far Eastern fells today, Sour Howes and Sallows. We started the walk in the rain but surprisingly it brightened up towards the end of it and there was even a sprinkling of snow visible across on the western fells.
