We haven't seen a blizzard like this for a few years! Can't walk outside, it's blinding.

Whole family has had fun with pup today who picked up a snowball on her name tag proof of freezing temperature.  Mrs Northernlights took these photos      Clear skies now and -0.8c Quite the Snow Dog!

Still piling up. About to don my ski goggles and head out for a wee wander.

    I wonder if that front to the north of Scotland will make it all the way down this way...

    Is it just me that thinks the main band is a bit further west than was forecast? Could be good news for areas slightly further west in the central belt as long as the hills don't kill it, which they probably will, although like I said earlier a much smaller band managed to make its way through to here.

    Having said that though, after the snow shower earlier, the temperature dropped back to -0.8C, but now its risen again to -0.1C and the wind is increasing. Would be good to get a persistent band of snow with no marginality whatsoever.

    I've been thinking that myself as it was supposed to run down the East coast of the UK. If it doesn't swing to the east a bit it's going to miss Aberdeenshire completely. Be just my luck.

    Been snowing here at -1C for the last 15 mins... which suggests good news as we were forecast to be at 2.5C and sleet by now.  Plenty of time for it to go tits up yet!

    Same here at -0.8c.Snow  blowing  around in a strong wind which has just got up. Young Mr Northernlights was just saying today that its been a long time since we"ve had to dig out drifts on the farm road with the loader .But as you say may be all melted by morning.

    Yup.  snow here too at a touch above -1'C. 

    If this comma feature delivers, it could be very good!

    A wee lull at Glencoe as midnight approached, but wind has picked up in last 20 minutes and is whipping the snow up. Radar shows the leading edge of more organised stuff just about here. Couple more pix from earlier: http://www.winterhighland.info/pix/pixalbum.php?pix_id=1207

    That huge blob on the radar does not look like it is wholly fizzling out as it leaves the Highlands and there are a few flakes now here in the strengthening wind so you never know.

    Better get off to sleep now though as work beckons in the morning unfortunately!

    edit. Gave it a few minutes and it is now snowing moderately. Will it last?

    It's not going to last but I haven't seen falling snow like this since I got buried in Jan 13. Gusty wind and heavy small snow, its blizzard like out there :) Lovely to see but not even covered the ground and judging by radar it'll be gone before too long. I've got to break my snow love pledge and admit I'm not too bothered, I'm off to Kilmacolm and back after work for three of the only four more important things than snow ;)

    My drive to work was awesome, that there road in the pic was white over all the way to Orange Lane with trainee drifts forming in the wind. IMG_1732.JPG

    To add some context, it's the A697, after the A68 and A7 it's one of the main roads in the Borders!

    Hubby estimates there is about an inch and a half on the kitchen roof (we can see the slope of the kitchen roof from the landing window).

    Was quite fun while it lasted.

    Bedtime now I guess.
