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.

    Snow shower here at Riccarton, W. Embra.

    What are the chances of that!

    101_North might even be getting a few flakes.

    Thank you all for sharing lovely snowy pictures - why could it not have done that when I was home at Christmas? Horizontal rain just does not set the scene. :D

    I'm genuinely surprised at the lack of snow in the west. This is at the back of my Dad's house in Kilmacolm at about 130m:

    Funny, it's just done the same here in Dyce i.e finally caught a shower when it's cold enough for it to settle. Easing off now by the looks of it.

    Yep. Pretty poor for a northwesterly, just not enough showers being driven in. Usually you get heavy rain showers  followed by intense hailstorms before it turns to snow, just wasn't unstable enough this time.

    Big line of showers lining up to the NW - shame it looks to be aiming for largely uninhabited land....

    you need eagle eyes to spot the eh.. eagle

    Really disappointed - I was expecting at least a few minutes of "spot the eagle" - but it's in the sky, with nothing obscuring it - making it super easy to spot in 5 seconds!

    You owe me a more time consuming challenge :)

    Hmm.. maybe turn on a rolling news channel and see how long you can watch them hysterically cover the weather without holding your head in your hands or p::sing yersel

    There are some interesting blobs in the radar way off to the NNW. I'm wondering if they will hit this region in the next few hours. Either way it's nice to see a light covering if snow on the ground (that won't be washed away overnight!)

    Yeah I was trying to figure out where they were going! Looks like somewhere out your way might get some showers after all from them...
