    Just when I was ready to give up on the Great British Winter, along came the proper winters of 2008-09, 09-10, 10-11 & 12-13 to restore the faith. A new trend perhaps?

  1. Loving this settled spell. Max of 13.8C again today after a low of -2.2C. Fourth cracking day on the bounce. Snaps of the Perthshire countryside from St Fillans GC this afternoon.
  2. A mini-whumphing from the snaw here this morning. Around 3 inches since half 7. Easing off now. 0.7C/-1C after an overnight low of -2.1C. Springtime! Edit: getting heavier again.
  3. Latest shower very sleety with some wet snaw mixed in. Currently 4.3C/-3C.
  4. A few flakes of the white stuff earlier this morning here and it's cauld. Overnight low of -2.9C and currently 0.4C/-1C.
  5. Very sleety stuff falling with the odd wet snaw flake mixed in. Slim pickings (much like won'ter overall this year), but the hills will look bonnie again. Currently 2.4C/1C.
  6. It's the 22nd of February. Someone has broken the weather. Hope this isnae our summer...
  7. Going by the forecast and models tonight, it is starting to look as though this winter is petering out from a cauld and snaw pov. Hope this is wrong, but if it's going to go this way, would rather it just did so properly and got onto the warmer days asap, rather than this endless snoozefest. Dull, mild, keech.
  8. 27.4mm of rain since 2am. Earn is high - has slightly burst its banks in the village centre. Mild: currently 7.3C/7C. Can we have the cauld back please?
  9. Cauld rain on here, washing away today's snaw. Currently 0.8C/1C.
  10. Some snaw snaps from this arvo's sledging with PG junior on the family heirloom sledge (Stiga snawracer - 37 years old and still going strong. The Swedes know how to build stuff). Cracking. Had an audience, too. Bit of a thaw all day, but max was only 2.0C. Currently 0.3C/0C.
  11. A low of -5.6C overnight. Further flurries earlier on this morning, but the snaw is on properly now. Currently -0.3C/-2C. Wax the sledges!
