Re: Snow !

Ugh it's a nightmare getting around here when it snows. We've invested in 4wd for this winter.

We have snow in the south west highlands - lying from about 600 metres upwards. It was sleeting down at our level briefly this afternoon.

Re: Snow !

IIRC the snow wasn't forecast to be anywhere south of Ben Lomond last night, but I wasn't really paying attention to the map south of here. I'm not sure there's anywhere high enough where you're going to have caught any. Also, it comes and goes very quickly at this time of year.

Probably not, but you never know ...

I go up that way pretty regularly and the scenery is outstanding. It almost makes up for the A9 being a deathtrap and appalling joke of a road.

I ignore reports like this, every year its going to be the "hottest" summer, or the "coldest" winter. Rarely is it either.

Re: Snow !

hottest 1 I normally ignore as well as we live in the UK and the chances seeing a blue sky in the summer are normally pretty slim ( I mean over the weekends as during the week it has been known to be scorching and come friday afternoon the rainclouds come in)

Lets hope not.
Well, clearly hell has already frozen over. They have a sensible reply from someone who appears to know what they are talking about in the comments section. That reply being the one from the UKMO where they say they can't acccurately predict the weather that far ahead (it's debabatable how accurate the close range forcasts are as well).

Re: Snow !

The school bus has failed to reach us for the second morning running - yesterday because of fresh snow, this morning because the rapid melt yesterday became a rapid re-freeze last night and the council don't grit the last 3 miles to our house.

Naturally the children aren't remotely upset by this. They made a snowman instead.

Re: Snow !

Well look at it this way.Your children get to use their imagination,get some exercise and develop new physical skills and have some fun as well.Oh and develop their team work skills as well.

Win,win.
