    Just seen on FB that all Stirling schools closed tomorrow. Good sign/bad sign?

    I think they were getting some grief after Falkirk making the call earlier on. But my OH who commutes to Stirling is thinking it might be a work from home day now.

    Moonshine* and snow showers:

    Pic was taken on my phone, no long exposure. I should go out and measure at some point but I reckon 2-3 inches with some mini-drifts, from the warmth of indoors.

    * yes, I know the moon doesn't shine but "Reflected sunshine and showers" sounded dumb.

    My friends are all freaking out at me, “Lisa you said this would be epic” 

    ive got away with it by reminding them it’s only Tuesday ??? 

    Ditto. I'm getting stick too. I'm going to pass all their complaints through to Hawsey should the current snaw underachievement persist in Leith. :pardon:

    I know I’ve said it before but just because it’s an easterly set up that doesn’t mean the highest snowfall totals will be near the east coast. East Kilbride saw 50cm from the January 87 easterly funnelling through the Forth-Clyde valley. By Thursday I would expect some of the highest snowfall totals to be to the south and east of Glasgow as well as eastern borders, West Lothian, parts of Fife (obviously @Benvironment’s house), possibly around the Ochils, and north of Dundee into Angus and west Aberdeenshire.
