  1. Aye. No tryin tae teach anyone tae suck eggs, but if ye huvnae dug the drive and cars oot, do it first thing the morn before the temps get above zero for a wee while then drop again. Otherwise, you'll be hacking at concrete instead of blowing away fairy dust soon enough. Even a slight freeze-thaw causes grain contact cementation and turns champagne powder into hardpack super quick. EDIT when I cleared the drive this morning it was super easy. T-shirt weather. Felt like I was in the alps. Twice the depth of the last frontal wet porridge snaw but a fraction
  2. Few mair photaes fae fort SIS. Dug the cars oot; surprisingly easy as the snaw is aw light and fluffy. Pity a dinnae hae a leaf blower! 1852840682_WhatsAppVideo2021-02-10at11_22_22.mp4
  3. No going further than the back door in the dressin goon atm, but i can still see the bench. Just. Holy guacamole.
  4. Weather update fae fort SIS. Jist back fae a wee run in the wuids. Conditions as follows: 2067811181_WhatsAppVideo2021-02-09at16_24_22.mp4
  5. Aboot 12 cm here with showers thick and fast. Pic of the road before a bloody plough spoiled it and the obligatory gairden bench. Gonnae be a nice dug walk the day.
  6. Mair ae a wee cow'rin, tim'rous beastie at work the day, Embra west. A 101 North type day. Better at hame where showers are slowly building up cover. Looking lively offshore fae fort SS. Might get masel a wee streamer yet.
  7. Maybe 4-5 cm now. Pretty regular heavy showers passing over. EDIT. Speak ae the devil... WhatsApp Video 2021-02-08 at 08.15.03.mp4
  8. As per the 06Z, the 12Z GFS has the atlantic really struggling. This is as warm as it gets before the beast fights back:
  9. Aye, every car is a 4x4 with the brakes on. Why not get a set of wheels (second hand?) with winter tyres for it? Or snow + mud if you are off-road a lot. I've got a set of 'all seasons' on some alloys for the winter which are not full winter, but manage the snaw/rain/cauld/mild of Scotland in winter, and a set of full on sports summers alloys. Can swap them myself one by one with a regular jack. As for the rugby, I got an Irish passport so I could support a team that wins stuff sometimes. As soon as I did that, Scotland qualified for the Euros and then won the Calcutta cup at twicken
  10. Showers pepping up a bit here. Teeny wee blobs joining up intae mair substantial blobs off the Berwickshire coast. So far I'm lucky if I've accumulated a cm in the gairden.
  11. Light tae moderate champagne pooder here. Everything slowing turning white. -0.1 °C
  12. Oh flooer ae Scotland, when wull we see, yer like again.... Moderate wet snaw here noo; T dropping pretty quickly. T = 1.6 °C/ DP = -0.7 °C.
  13. Heavy wet snaw here now. Muckle flakes mixed in with the rain.
