  1. About 30cm lying snow now here in Aboyne but difficult to gauge with depths varying everywhere. I cleared the patio table last night so nice top up of dry powder overnight. Just cleared ours and elderly neighbours drives and paths. Hard work but good alternative to the usual jogging and cycling. Need to sort out our 6yr olds snowboarding ramp in the back garden now as it's looking smaller with all the new snow around it. Might be a streamer lining up to follow the river Dee early afternoon. Have had huge snow falls from Dee streamers before.
  2. Very heavy snow here in Aboyne tonight. A little on the wet side but can't complain. Difficult to gauge depth and spent 2hr shovelling snow this morning and expect I'll be doing the same again tomorrow. Have had two great days snowboarding with my 6yr old son after home schooling in a field 5min from the front door. Missing a poma but can't complain. Expect the snow might end up too deep tomorrow but taking my skis with me. Still viewing some ridiculous accumulated falling snow totals during the next week.
  3. I live in Aboyne and I've been viewing some ridiculous weekly accumulated snowfall forecasts on the various models over the last 24hr. Ventusky app currently showing 70+cm over the next week for Aboyne. Last night it was showing 90+cm (these totals based on the GFS run). The ICON run showing less but still significant. It's snowing at the moment but not coming to much. We have about 2in of snow at the moment lying on top of ice that's been here since Xmas. I travelled for groceries yesterday to Westhill and Inverurie and was very surprised there was little to no snow in those locations. I'm no
  4. 18+degC at home this afternoon. Scottish record broken. Only seems like a few days since the last of the large snowman in the back garden melted. Enjoying the early warmth while we have it. Not removing the winter wheels yet though.
  5. Still a good cover in place here. View a couple of miles from the house on the way home tonight. Icy roads in the mornings last couple of days at -4c with water run off freezing overnight.
  6. Good days sledging today. View of Mount Keen in the distance. Just over 3,000ft peak.
  7. Difficult driving conditions on the way home from work. Sunny all day kingswells. This was the back road home to avoid the chaos on the roads around Deeside Aboyne. Good snow cover at home for sledging etc....
  8. -11.5C leaving Aboyne for work this morning. Hoping the Lecht or Glenshee get a wee top up soon to kick off the skiing season properly. Snow cover still looking thin at higher altitudes on the East side of the Cairngorms.
  9. Aboyne -8.5C min overnight and 5cm fresh snow in the early hours. No new snow at kingswells overnight. Fun drive to work - nothing like cutting first tracks through the snow with 4wd and winter tyres.
  10. Same here for Aboyne although still got a fair snow cover in place from last week and down to -7c this morning when I hit the road for work. Hoping the Lecht gets a good dumping over the next 10 days or so as planning a mornings skiing early Feb. Should be good cover in place by then. Only the magic carpet and Robin open today - shocking.
  11. It's at the Muir of Dinnet National Nature Reserve. Nice walks through forrests with left over huge glacial boulders. The vat was carved out by melt water during the last ice age. There is a small tourist building at the car park that is left open for visitors to enter and read up on all the wildlife and history of the area. Well worth a visit. We're there a good few times a year as only 5min up the road. Great for all ages but entrance to the vat itself requires a little navigation over some rocks that a stream runs through - very icy today. Will head up for some more winter photos when we ge
  12. Trip a couple of miles along the road to the burn'o'vat today. Scenery is always great there but winter is the best.
  13. Fantastic scenery today while out the house for a 6.5km jog. Another ice day and haven't seen any obvious snow loss. Photos taken close to coo cathedral back road that passes Aboyne Castle.
  14. Aye nice view to have on the commute. I take the Tarland route home most days to see the view towards lochnagar from queens view. Fantastic scenery when the whole area is white.
