Then there was the 2002 movie "Cabin Fever" a horror film universally panned that had an approval rating of 0%. It involved a group of students weekending in a remote cabin, the usual assortment of mad dog, drifters and neighbours plus a flesh eating virus.
Here in W. Ardnamurchan it's a bit different. In August the days are quite long, I don't have to eat pine marten, I don't smoke, my neighbours are mostly sane and I have just shot the last mouse.
No, it's the bloody incessant rain, gloom, grey skies and being housebound by the weather that causes stress, anxiety and glumness. Even Mimi the cat just sits and stares out of the window all day. On the bright side. I checked the Norwegian , BBC and XC weather forecasts Sunday will be dry! sunny! and warm!
Is that picture in the Cabin Fever post from a book called Cache Lake Country?
Yes. I bought it 50 years ago in Edinburgh before going to Canada for three years. One of my favourite books.
One of my favourites as well. My later father had a copy which I read when younger.I managed to buy a reprint from Amazon a couple of years ago.
