There was some snow on the Campsies, plenty of icy slushy deposits on the roads. The Queen's View had a f

My Weather Diary Of Autumn 2012

[center][b]SEPTEMBER DICUSSION[/b][/center] 1st September: A bit drizzly earlier, then it turned quite nice and sunny for a spell but cloud cover again increased and much of the evening was wet and dull.
