    We had a bit of a struggle to get to the hospital this morning, the bus was 20 mins late and the taxi got fed up waiting and had gone. But we got there and hubby had the op, it's not cancer it's just

    Do we have any gurus online? Are we getting close to streamer land? 

    Or am I just favouring the most optimistic radar? :cold:

    Kids not happy, wind blown away most  of the snow on the best sledging hill in the area - lovely out when the sun is shining.  Vicious wind chill though.

    Most of the shower activity round here is happening to the north of Bennachie (second photo shows view looking north towards it).

    Def a red warning for snow in 2010, but it was removed some hours before its time-stamp arrived. 

    Did they not issue one in early Feb 1979 as a depression tracked up the East coast. Unfortunately it picked up a warm sector and it turned to rain. This was the same event that brought chaos and iirc a red warning to London?

    This band which is moving towards central belt and die west looks absolutely potent! Will be interesting to see how this all pans out but looking like it will live up to the warnings for once ?

    I'd feel much more excited about this red warning if I didn't have a niece working in North Berwick currently trying to convince her boss to let her drive home early to a village along the coast road.... :( 

    Other niece and this niece's boyfriend got let out from their works early, but little niece's boss seems to be totally thick. Grr. 

    Ridiculously irresponsible of your niece’s boss. I hope she gets home safely.  My son stays in central Norwich, they’ve had over 9 inches of snow with a new amber warning for the next few hours but his boss told the staff via WhatsApp this morning they had to get to work (restaurant situated in a village south east of the city). He’s very experienced driving in snow, having lived in French Alps for a few skiing seasons, but got 100metres along main road and got stuck and that’s in the sheltered city centre.  Companies should put safety first. 

    Stay safe everyone - I hope you all get home ok.
