  1. What a change in temperature! 7.3c this morning, up by 10 degrees since yesterday morning. Shocker! As for the snow that was forecast for last night...... Nah! Didnae happen. No there's a surprise! Did manage a walk along the shore with friend and her doggie. A wee bit nippy as the wind had got up, but lovely nevertheless.
  2. -3.3c at 7.30 this morning. Temp now beginning to creep up. We've had a few dustings of snow on the Cuillin this week, nothing to lower levels. Depending which forecast I look at I'm due for a snowfall overnight. Nah! More than likely to be sleet! Off out for a walk with fried and her doggie later. Too good a day to stay indoors!
  3. -2.6 this morning. Warming up ( HA! ) nicely now. Currently 8.8c sunny and calm. More please!
  4. A beautiful run up from Stirling yesterday, blue sky and sunshine all the way and Auld Scotia looking amazing. Got a wee bit nippy last night, temp got down to -2.1c, currently at 4.4c. Been another cracking day, long may it continue! ( But I know it won't! )
  5. Well what a surprise! Woke to clear skies and NO RAIN! Off course it won't last do best get up and on before it arrives.
  6. Yup. Temp went down to 2.8c one night during the week. Current bedroom temp is 14.6 so it might help if I shut the window and door!
  7. Ha! What's he going to be like if/when Winter actually arrives!
  8. Two days in a row we've had lovely autumn sunshine here. Temp hit a chilly 3.4c during the night. The garden is getting the attention it so sorely needs and looks so much better for it. The weekend looks like utter keich and next week looks like we might be getting the first Autumn storm, depending on what forecast you read! We'll see. best get out and pull more weeds now!
  9. Morning Peeplings! Been a wee bit damp overnight, currently 12.2c, cloud trying to clear. Looks like it might be a reasonable weekend up here!
  10. Lovely pink and purple skies with rain veils away to the north just now. Och you know what they say about red skies in morning. Been a cracking three days up here, but good things never last sadly. It's a balmy 14.3 c just now, we'll see how we do the rest of the day.
  11. Well, for once we are missing the torrential rain and general windiness! Just dreich, midge infested days here just now, but brighter tomorrow I believe!
  12. A bit sticky and uncomfortable last night and temp currently at15.5c, cloudy and light breeze. Looks like we'll miss the fun and games weather this week. Looks more like the east will get it whilst we get off lightly over here. Pity, could do with a guid thunderstorm to clear the air a bit!
  13. Still looking for summer! Walking down to work yesterday evening I was wearing a fleece and waterproof jacket. Sunny skies but that wind just aboot cut me in two! Walking back from work after 11, what a difference! Nae wind, clear skies and a damn sight warmer than earlier on! It wouldn't have had anything to do with the coupe of glasses of wine I had at the end of the shift. No, off course not.
  14. Hmm, weather station showing temp as 20c, something not quite right with that! Yesterday was a day from hell right enough, freezing sleet, strong winds and big puddles. Struggled trying to find somewhere to have lunch in Portree yesterday, so after shopping and birthday card hunting we did finally get in somewhere. Not a place I would normally venture into with mediocre service and grub ok, but since the tourists had taken over everywhere else it was all that was left! Silly season has arrived early this year, and not everywhere open, glad I'm one of the great retired now!
  15. Oops! Better rush off tae the Co-op and buy a dozen loaves and forty pints o' milk. Three snowflakes have just floated past my window. Where's my snow shovel? ❄❄❄
  16. According to XC weather I will be snowed in come Sunday/Monday. Aye right! Mair like I'll have sleet burn! Ouchya! Failed this morning, 4.6c, breezy with it and still snow on the hills from earlier on this week. ❄
  17. Oh now, doesn't this look interesting! That'll definitely blow the non-winter type blues away!
  18. Gorgeous morning here, crisp, clear and sunny. I'll take that any day! Makes a vast change from the murky dreichness we've had over the last week. Temp got down to 4c last night, that's practically getting back to ice age conditions! Don't see this fine weather lasting too long though, probably be back to horizontal sleet soon.
  19. Hideous weather here. Sick tae the back teeth of the continuous wind and horizontal rain. The wind blew the OH's scooter over last night, slight crack to the screen and a few wee scrapes, so really not that bad. Hating the mild dreichness, wouldn't mind if the temp plummeted to 0 degrees, at least it would feel like winter. Been a bit of a crappy winter so far and nothing showing on the horizon even into March. Ach well, maybe we'll get a lovely spring! Sez she, living in hope!
  20. My sympathies to Hairy Celt who had a completely crap week on Skye. I do hope you managed to find a half decent bar to sup a couple of drams! Calm and cooler here today, no rain ( yet! ). Ah well, at least the rain has been good for the whisky and gin industries up here!
  21. This is normal HC, yes, it is truly keech! More of this tomorrow. Nae wonder I take a drink! No sign of anything remotely interesting in the coming weeks either, so we'll need to put up wi' this mince for a while. Pass the whisky please.
  22. Lovely sunny morning here, temp around 1.6c. Didn't get bothered too much by Erik the other day, just lots of rain and general squals. Was away last weekend, had the journey from hell on the way home. Car broke down at Doune, phoned Green flag at 10am. Plenty of other calls throughout the day and we were finally picked up at 3.30 to be trundled home. Now there's not a lot to see in Doune, but me and Bro made it to the wee cafe to warm up and drink lots of tea to warm up. No idea what the temp was, but Baltic probably covers it. So finally loaded onto a truck from Lix Toll garage, who dropped us there and we transferred to another truck to Fort William. Truck number three was tootling along nicely when the divers boss called him to say accident at Auchtertyre, road closed both ways. This was around 7pm. It was suggested we get to Kintail lodge Hotel and car would be relayed home next day. I thought, is the hotel even open? Boss man called to check. Nope. Closed. My heart had hit my boots when we heard of the road closure, now it plunged to depths unheard of. My last gasp effort: there's a wee hotel in Dornie. Please, please, please be open! When we turned the corner and saw lights on and folk stuffing their faces in the bar my happy wee heart started dancing. And yes, they had rooms available too! Bar was very busy for a Monday night, full of folk trying to get to Skye, stuck in Dornie for the night! Barman was kept very busy that might, but I was just so thankful to be warm at last, with grub in my belly and a dram in my tiny frozen paws! Dornie hotel gets full marks and a gold star from me, Green flag will have to redeem themselves big time, and refund me my hotel costs before I even think about awarding any marks to them. Five hours from first phone call to first pick up is not acceptable. Got my sword sharpened, sword at the ready, full body armour being polished as I type. Green flag, I'm on the warpath! Talking of swords, went to the Bannockburn exhibition last Sunday. Fab-u-lous Dahling! Even if you're not that interested in history go and see it. If you behave you can get to dress up in armour and wave a sword around!
  23. Morning SNAW Hunters! We had another wee covering overnight so we've maybe had about 4-5 cm of snow. WOWSERS! Not. Been a slow winter coming right enough. Never mind, we still have the rest of February to get through! Any of our experts out there have any thoughts on what remains of winter and whether we're likely to see a return of snow and ice? ❄❄
  24. Verily, it doth snow! One cat sitting on the window ledge mesmerized, the other snoozing on my bed. Don't know how much has fallen yet as I've not been out but I wouldn't reckon it would be a lot as there was nothing there at 5.45, so maybe a centimetre or so. ❄❄❄
  25. Well, well! Looks ever likely that I could be seeing some white stuff tomorrow! Forecasts vary, one says snow, one says sleet, so if I deploy my reverse psychology and say we'll only get sleet........❄❄❄ Currently 2.1c and overcast. Perhaps this time tomorrow it'll be all white ( or not! ).
