Hmm, it’s really quietened down on this thread. I’m beginning to think there may just possibly be some correlation between the prospect of snow falling, or snow actually falling and the amount of posts from members. Do you think I’m on to something there? :D

Anyway others have said the same but I would like to add my voice of thanks to everyone for making this such a fun, friendly and unpretentious place to talk about the weather over the last week or so. It’s been quite a ride weather-wise  and the quality of banter has been high! :)

A special word of thanks to the regulars* on this thread, the guys and gals who post year round whether it’s an epic easterly at the end of winter or a boring drizzlefest in the beginning of June. They know who they are but @CatchMyDrift @Hairy Celt @Northernlights @Ravelin @Blitzen @NUT @Cheggers  and their like (definitely not an exhaustive list). You guys lead this thread, we just follow! 

* I consider myself a solid semi-regular these days. :D

Hopefully we'll pick up a few more regulars over the next year. It was pretty good over the past year that the thread kept ticking over but the more the merrier :)

I did ask her too as she has a 3 hour wait in Edinburgh, I'm not sure the swear filter in here would cope with the answer..

And the washing basket, and the hoovering, and changing the bedding, and cleaning the toilet... (Been there...)

Gentle snow falling in Aberdeen giving a light top up it seems to be pepping up a bit off the coast so maybe more to come.

As an occasional lurker I'd like to add my thanks to everyone who has been posting. I've had great fun reading all the posts.

 

I don't know anything about weather beyond what I observe when I look up at the sky so feel rather under qualified posting anywhere else on the forum but I feel qualified to comment here, since I know what buckfast is, and I've hunted high and low for a plain loaf this week so I feel an affinity with you all.

Suitably chilled, in more ways then one. I'll raise one to you in my very imaginary igloo later :drinks:

That goes to everyone, just to add to the spirit (hic) of @Hawesy

You're out of luck, sadly. Any wine round this way has been well quaffed by the locals. It's been like 28 days later round this way. Any shops have been picked clean, even all the soy milk has sold out. 😱

Climbed to 1.5c today and snow softened and roofs started to drip but from 4.00pm the frost returned and everything crunched up and it is currently 0c Not so many showers this afternoon but odd flakes still falling this evening

Cows made  it out to neeps in field and you could see the smiles on their faces. Pruned apple trees in garden and trimmed back a holly bush so moving about kept me warm in spite of the fresh east wind.

Thank you Hawsey for your kind words about us all

The first thing I thought of when I saw that,  was how very easy it would be to seal you inside!............:D 

Been one of the best winters I have spent on here actually.   Loved the banter,  safe in the knowledge that nothing would be taken  too seriously.   Except for 101-North that is  'cause I meant every effing word! :laugh::give_rose:
