    Mornings getting noticeably lighter. Patchy cloud and quite mild, almost feels springlike with bulbs starting to show.

    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.

    Some cracking photos @Northern Strath and plenty more on Saturday from lots of folk.

    Back at the grindstone yesterday :angry: and the weather was indeed utter crap.  Cloud was skimming the rooftops and incessant drizzly psht.  Lots of snowmelt and rivers still in spate this morning although abating somewhat now.  There's an improvement today with at least some pale sunshine now.

    The coast along here got a bit of a battering a few days ago - storm debris up on the coast roads and folk had the gates and doors sandbanked.  I think this was the usual winter combination of a northerly gale coinciding with the top of the spring tides.

    Bloody hell there's some sore heads in here now. Is this the post-snow blues?

    To misquote Fraser on Dad's Army (at least I think it was him), 'We're all f###ed, ah tell ye, we're all f###ed!!' and he hadn't even heard of AGW. Donald Fart has but 'doesn't believe in', as if it's a fairy tale made up by his Hebridean granny. Don't get me started. :angry::wallbash:

    Mother Nature has hit the bland button big time this week. If we're good little people we might get a frost later in the week, then we've got this to look forward to this time next week:

    Not exciting in the slightest. Will I weather watch this week? Or recite the Argos catalogue using descriptive mime?

    I still have a wall to paint but I'm saving that for a rainy day. Last time I tried, the frost came and condensation made a bit of a mess of my nice brush-work.

    I'm quite excited to report sunshine from the depths of the south-east. Dare I say it's quite a nice day outside now, very much like the next season after winter...IMG_1757.JPG

    It does seem more likely from a "sods law" point of view that when the spring flowers start to come up - there will be a 2 week spell of -40 degree temperatures to kill everything off.

    (yeah I know, slight exaggeration) 

    But think how many photos you see of Daffodils poking up through the snow.

    (Here is some help if you have never seen them https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=daffodils+in+snow+pictures&espv=2&biw=1366&bih=638&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwie4pqiu8nRAhVqAsAKHbeFDNYQ_AUIBigB )

    A mild and partly sunny afternoon, temperature up to 13c. I do think sunshine makes a huge difference in this kind of set up. If you are stuck under grey and drizzly skies it's soul-sapping but if you get some blue sky and sunshine, as we've been fortunate to have yesterday and today at times, it makes all the difference.

    I see they are sniffing an easterly in the model thread again probably the right time of year for it  as in years gone past  February was often sunny ,cold  calm and very frosty but good for working outside cutting whin bushes(gorse) and overhanging branches at the edge of fields and even taking the biggest stones off on frozen ground.

    Yes @Northernlights it looks like a forecast SSW will probably come at perfect time to ensure not a back loaded winter but a spring loaded winter..... much as I love the snow I do like to get the golf clubs out again come spring and put to bed the hunt for snow until November again.....first world problem compared to farmers trying to deal with topsy-turvy seasons
