    1. Stuart

      Apparently it was coming down in big flakes around 6.30am (I was asleep) - and everywhere south and west of the city centre had a covering.

  12. Chilly in Dumfries - visited a C15th tower house after working today. Stunning.

  13. Off to Dumfires over the Devil's Beef Tub

  14. Another glorious day. Was down by the Tay in Perth at lunchtime and it was absolutely smashing.

  15. What a stunning day today - deep deep blue skies and pleasant temps - more of the same please :-)

  16. Decidedly dark and dreary in Dumfries at the moment...

      It being night time is probably not helping Shuggs..

  17. Snow on Arthur's Seat in the city centre this morning - at 251m

    1. andy_leics22


      Edinburgh City Centre is 250m ASL??!!

    2. shuggee


      Arthur's Seat is an extinct volcano Andy - just to the east of the city centre by the Parliament/Holyrood Palace.

    3. LomondSnowstorm


      Snow got down to around 150m asl here, and some of the cars coming from west Fife were white

  18. When there's a foot of snow on the ground during the second week of March, I wonder if these over-dramatic (some would say childish) members who will 'see us next autumn' will return for the fun...

    1. disco-barry


      Yeah or the may never return if the forum team leaders can post what they want but they can't, poor buggers!



      Thats not very warm and friendly towards the members is it?

    3. Thundery wintry showers

      Thundery wintry showers

      I think we'd get a very varied reception if that happened- some would be thinking "oops! what was I thinking of earlier? This is bliss!" and others would be saying "bugger off snow, I wanted you a couple of weeks ago, but now it's spring!"...lol!

  19. The heavens have just opened.

  20. Hi Ja23 I am finding out for you what is going on
  21. Record low Arctic sea ice for Dec and now January too...



      What do you mean hard stats Isolated Frost!!?? More like Warped Facts!!

    2. Geordiesnow


      Looking at the Arctic sea ice extent graphs, January is not the lowest on record but its pretty close. To be fair, its not that we are million miles away from previous years either. It seems with this refreezing season, we have been taking one steps forwards, then we get 2 steps back. The summer melt season will be interesting.

    3. Gray-Wolf


      melt starts 1 million below the past 4 years so will finish 1 million below those years?

  22. Rain turning to snow here...

  23. Have been away for a few days - and having looked at the models I'm asking what happened to the bus that was due round the corner?!

  24. The roll of distant thunder breaks, the afternoon of silence wakes They hurry through from Petergate as if they know this dance In fury blind, I drive at night across the moors, the open roads Beneath the freezing starry skies, racing in some trance These cities are illusions of some triumph over Nature's laws We've seen the iron carcass rust and buildings topple into dust And as the waters rise, it seems we cling to all the rootless things The Christian lies, technology, while spirits scream and sing Oh God I love the world Well I never said I was a clever man but I know enough to understand That the endless leaps and forward plans will someday have to cease You blind yourselves with comfort lies like lightning never strikes you twice And we laugh at your amazed surprise as the Ark begins to sink This temple that is built so well to separate us from ourselves Is a power grown beyond control, a will without a face And watching from outside I wish that I could wash my hands of this But we are locked together here, this bittersweet embrace Oh God I love the world And if one day the final fire explodes across the whitened sky I know you've said you'd rather die and make it over fast With courage from your bravest friends, waiting outside for the end With no bitterness but an innocence that I can't seem to grasp I know somehow I will survive - this fury just to stay alive So drunk with sickness, weak with pain, I can walk the hills one last time Scarred and smiling, dying slow, I'll scream to no one left at all I told you so, I told you so, I told you so . . Oh God I love the world NEW MODEL ARMY - I LOVE THE WORLD (1988)
