  1. I now spend most of my time browsing here and the focussed thread- I haven't got a clue what they are on about but I don't want to throw things at my laptop which is pretty much how I feel when I risk my sanity and peruse the musings of fools in the other one! apologies to those from here who post in there but it's just a bit too IMBY for me.
  2. Having missed all of the snow last week I look forward to further snow on the hills - only please. It's been quite frustrating having such skewed weather reports on tv. It's like the west of Scotland suddenly disappeared off the map. However, don't know why I get so irked, we've had plenty snow since December (igloos and everything) and don't think it's been reported either, although not like last weeks - that looked epic for a few days. I think the shine came off it for most when their worlds stopped turning though. Glad to hear things are returning to almost normal for a lot of people but quite some disruption still for some. However, we're all fooooked if there's a zombie apocalypse - it would appear it's most definitely every man/ wifey/ auntie Beanie for him/ herself on the bread and milk front!
  3. Hoi, I didn't say anything about being unhappy or sad - what's this Netweather changing my words. I said ADAPT!!! for folks sake
  4. Hear, hear - bake some bread, us humans have been doing it for a few years I think, bake some for a neighbour, friends, your auntie Beanie - eat scones, oatcakes, etc, do you really need 'plain' bread? ADAPT I'm not happy, in fact I'm quite sad!!!! Sorry folks just a bit weary of the moaning. I'll get back in my box now.
  5. I'm only interested in snow falling in Lochaber - will it? Or are we just going to be baltic? Those runs at Nevis Range won't top themselves up you know!!
  6. Yip, Winter's definitely over - a fresh 1" of snow this morning, belting it down it was - sure sign of Spring!
  7. I had 7 days straight skiing up Nevis Range from the 1st - the wind has blown it about this week so hoping the gullies are filled now and any new snow settles well so when the wind finally goes we can get back up to play. Such a different winter than last years mehness!!
  8. Drove up from Glasgow over Rannoch Moor earlier tonight. It was a bit snowy in places, the road was completely white in places so glad I got through when I did.
  9. Sorry to wake you lot up. It's starting to get darker earlier so let the Scottish bletherfest resume. Looking forward to the weather/ leaf colour change. A clear crispy October would be soooooooooo lovely...eh wake me up when it happens.
  10. Aye @Ravelin it was snowing almost down to ground level in the Fort today. The hill is looking in good form - enjoy! Incidentally I awoke to over an inch of snaw on the ground this morning...which was nice.
  11. There is nothing shameless about that pic, isn't Scotland stunning in the snow. I love my back yard!
  12. Nevis Range is looking not too shabby at the moment, hoping for a few more showers before the weekend.
  13. If the snow conditions improve for the Lecht I would definitely go there. It is perfect for beginners and children. They have a magic carpet and chairlift making access easy and the poma tows are child friendly. This weekend will be very busy at Cairngorm probably and Glenshee if the conditions improve. The Lecht is just so much easier to manage with kids. We used to opt for it when our boys were wee and they loved it, perfect for an Aberdeen start too. Enjoy. I'm looking to four days (hopefully) at Nevis Range (snow dance in progress).
  14. Yeah, it's not great at all, feeling a bit too small in this one, starting to look around the house at where we can hide if this gets any worse. Forget horrid, this Henry is horrendous. Amazed the power has stayed on...stained glass window, that's me jinxed it.
