It is a feeling of pure excitement when it snows in the Shire! Well, I would quite happily send all the snow that has landed on my head today off to Hobbiton for the other halflings to enjoy. It is so very very heavy as I try to pass Caradhras!
The force of the blizzard is making it very difficult to both find my way and keep my footing. Certainly the last thing I want to do is fall off the edge. Even the soft snow wouldn’t prevent me breaking a bone, or at the very least bruising a big hobbit toe!
I can most certainly understand why the company had to head back. Looking at this avalanche ahead I do not think that anything could pass. Well, maybe if they had a pet Balrog with them. The fiery breath may just do it. Actually the breath of Kinmur the dwarf may melt it a bit. But alas I left him back in the Lone Lands some months back.
Anyway, I am doing my best to rest here, but will head back where I came from tomorrow. Yes, Caradhras has defeated me too!
