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.

    Had to make the most of what we had which is basically my cul de sac has a cm of iced snow so tied the sledge to my bike and whisked the kids around....they had a ball....continue to long for something proper before winters end

    A couple of hours ago the temp had dropped below -2C, now it's 0.8C. No rain  yet but pretty sure now that's what it'll be.

    Rain on frozen ground and paths. Not a good combination. Ice everywhere, had to cut short the dog walk tonight. He doesn't seem too bothered, currently snoring in the armchair.

    Went to pub at 5pm sun was setting only the slightest sign of the warm front beginning to push in.. Left at 8pm and was surprised the rain had already started. Streets were still icy but was rain falling.. Still raining and will for the next few hours the Warm Front pushing through but soon as it does we have a cold front straight behind. Judging by the temps behind it we're into Returning Polar Maritime Airmass.. Gloomy for next few days but beats the Polar Maritime airflow with heavy shower after shower..

    The rain's arrived to mark the end of the cold (for now), but I can report that I was stalking a couple deer today in thigh deep snow. Not often you get to say that!

    Morning Kilties! It's 10c here this morning and a proper dreich fest! It was lovely while it lasted and we can only hope we might get another longer cold snap this winter! :cold:

    Mild winning the battle easily, just a few scabby snow patches left here. The hill in the background is Harden's Hill near Duns. It's a nice quiet morning for a dog walk at least :) bit soggy though.IMG_1745.JPG

    Great 14 mile walk in the snow and sunshine yesterday, a long time in the making! Fantastic day.:D

    Back to the norm today, cloudy, 6c. Everything looks very grey.

    Nothing much doing in the models at the moment so time for a wee break I suppose.  Quite sure that interest will resume again shortly however as I don't think this is over yet.   Never was one for putting any faith in January around these parts anyway as it never seems to deliver.   Here's hoping for a better February/March.:)

    Meanwhile, back at the ranch................

    I know Mardatha.   January here tho' for this area, I find particularly fruitless.   My birthday around the middle of February  more often than not can be snowy. Ever hopeful.:)

    Though it's fair to say - that 09/10 and then 10/11 both delivered, here - and it kind of spoiled us...... I in particular remember than when 2012 delivered zero snow for the entire Autumn, Winter and Spring that I was extremely disappointed - we didn't even get a dusting!

    More green than white now on the grass. Temp 6C.

    As Hawesy said a great day for a walk yesterday. Took the dog up to the Sidlaws for a brisk walk in crisp sunshine. Cold enough in the snow for the dog to get back into the car  and home without any mud for a change.

    But springs in Scotland often do March in particular but recently April and May have had some pretty potent cold spells with lack of spring grass growth so the risk of wintry weather is not over yet. In fact I think the trend is for more cold in the spring than in the winter             (? lack of Arctic ice altering the timing of the seasons)

    Oh how lovely..... we have MurderSleet coming according to some "media" establishments.  Anyone heard of MurderSleet before? 

    (just for clarification - I don't actually think killer rain is coming)

    <sigh>

    Winters suck nowadays. I hate myself for getting mildly excited seeing a "feels like" -4C in the charts 7 days away, knowing full well it won't come off.

    It's that bad I may even have to resort to reading the Daily Express and find out when the next SNOMAGEDDON is happening.

    A quick scan through the models this morning shows absolutely nothing of interest for the next week or so, not even a good winter storm. We really are going to be in a no man's land of blandness. If it's going to be mild I hope at least we see some sunshine, and maybe, just maybe a little frost.

    To be honest,  its been great fun dipping my toes into the model thread and trying to educate myself on reading models this winter but spring cant come quickly enough for me.   Real cold and snowy weather just seems to be out of our reach this winter.       Looking forward to the lighter mornings and evenings.

    Bit of a shock being back to this lame Scottish excuse for a winter, overcast, mild, misty and damp. There was some snow lying when I got home yesterday but thats pretty much disappered overnight and now only the hills have patchy covering. It's not just the weather that sucks, the roads heading up from Edinburgh yesterday were a disgrace in comparison to roads we travelled on from bansko back to Sofia.

    Out of reach this winter and the previous five and I suspect next winter will be similar fare. The world is changed.....
