Boring Sunday in the mountains

Today is a cold (-5C), boring Sunday in the Lesotho highlands. The snow from yesterday's blizzard is still nearly a meter thick in some places.
I've spoken to my husband at home (missing him and the animal "kids" like crazy this morning), and Mozart's C-minor mass is playing to keep me company.

After months (maybe years) I've eventually updated the firmware on my Yaesu FT-950. It was kind of a non-event. I really expected that it would involve a few attempts, and possible failure. I guess you mustn't allow other people's experiences to determine your mindset. I've read so many accounts of radios being "bricked" by failed software attempts, that I was really apprehensive, but decided I must stop letting other people's failures hold ME back. I suppose this can be applied in all aspects of life.  Well, the radio is working fine, so it's up to date and ready to work more DX.

I'm here in the mountains till 6 May, when I head home again.

I'll try and post some pictures of the snow in a while.

Have a great Sunday.
