    Cold (not quite frosty) and grey here this morning. There's still patchy and very thin snow lying in the garden so I'm sure most of the Highlands will still be white and getting whiter soon. The forecast for this week is cold and er not much else for here... It's been very dry here too and I remember some of the burns in Caithness in the summer had pretty well no flow from June to mid August. Late September into October was wetter but it's been generally dry since.

    North-westerly now showing for next Sunday. Could be fun - I'll be on Skye then

    Another couple from near Carrbridge yesterday. A bit self-indulgent, I do like trees. Aspen, lovely upswept branches that have bent over at the top - this is quite an old tree (for an aspen, anyway) And a couple of birches, downy on the left and silver on the right (both will be hybrids though!)

    Those pictures are brilliant - they make winter come real. Also the NNR looks well worth a visit. Thanks!

    Full sun here all day, and down by Carrbridge, where we went for a short potter. Up towards the trees... then across to Sluggan Bridge where there was some of this in the river Back through more trees and then this across the Beauly Firth as we headed home A rather jolly day out!

    Now -2.5C and a bit of high cloud. Could get lower than last night I reckon. You can take your easterlies and put them somewhere dark.

    It's usually me that's griping about the lack of snow! I only get snow from the north here so I'm not expecting to see any more in the foreseeable at all. Remember last winter's epic snow that folk like @CatchMyDrift 'suffered'? Zippo here!

    @Northern Strath -10C?!?!? I've forgotten what that feels like! We got down to -3.5C last night, coldest this winter so far. Plenty of snow vanishing in the sunlight despite the cold. It's ablation, not subliming as I wrote yesterday. I think ablation includes subliming, which is strictly the weird process of going from solid to vapour without being liquid in between. @scottish skier would explain it better, later, perhaps?

    Just missed an ice day here by 0.4C, so little melting, but there's some high level muck this evening so temp prob won't drop as I was expecting. This elderly chap must be a reincarnated skier as he likes the fresh powder and runs around manically chasing bits of snow that he throws around. The other two cats weren't so keen. Been planning a snowy day out with Ms HC for the weekend

    We are covered - maybe an inch or so on even ground, and the temp is steady at -1.5C. Cats not so keen.

    @edo I Yay. Flakes, several, nay many. Lol, poor cats though, the 2 black ones stay in by the stove and grumble about 'Whiskas ain't what it used to be... Back in the day they at least had some nice pig foreskin, now all we get is rat testicles. Bleugh.' Must get a white one next time. @More Snow would appear to have gone the way of the parrot, or at least this version has. He may resurrect? Is he watching us??

    Yup. Thieves. Looks like the now-sublimed graupel will be my lot.

    First of the proper snow showers is about 30 mins away north of here. Watch the easter ross hills steal all my snow. B'staards.

    Highland traffic cameras are looking a bit mental. Star wars.
