10.00pm: Route home blocked by a thigh-high lake at Penrith Railway Station. Please add 20 minutes swimming time to the length of your usual journey.
10.20pm: Alternate route blocked by massive, fallen pine tree. Please add 20 more minutes climbing time to your journey.
Footpath totally obscured by greenery for two house-lengths.
Still passing the fallen pine tree. Never realised that particular one was so tall. The air smells like Christmas.
