It was a beautiful sunny day, here. Clear sky, calm although chilly out this afternoon – temp was around 4C.

Noticed several skeins of these flying overhead while on the dog walk.

It won’t be long now until they start the return to their summer grounds in Iceland/Greenland etc.

Currently 0C, still cloudless and a nice starry sky.

I do love inches. They make sense to me, cms don't. And whatif it really does happen.....

You're clearly over 25 then M.!

I am the opposite. Feet and inches are bizzare. But then there's Fahrenheit and Celsius.....

Just loving the 12Z ECM's fantastic prognosis for snow depths in 10 days time :D

That's inches, not centimetres, folks. Pure pie in the sky I know, but nice eye candy :cold-emoji:

That's a crap map.

Metric is much more sensible as a measuring system. I use a bizarre hybrid of bits and bobs of everything with no reasoning at all. Rainfall makes more sense in mm but snow only makes sense in inches, I have to multiply it up to cm.

I must have a foot in both camps when it comes to feet and inches and Fahrenheit and Celsius. My brain converts all to the the other. Living in California for 3 years between 7 & 10 years old helps as well. I was snow starved but I do remember traveling between LA and San Francisco at Christmas time and my dad pulling off the 101 freeway as we were at a high point with snow. I felt like I was back in Scotland for that brief moment. I’m sure my dad has photos so see if he still has them. 

I will probably give away my age but when I was growing up one of my favourite programmes was ‘Rainbow’. Over the Christmas period we managed to make a loaf of bread that looked like Zippy. Just thought you should all know.

Well we are now on snow event number 5

 I cannot remember a winter with so many wintry outbreaks. 

Lost count of total depth but must be getting up for 18 inches (45cm). 

One with snow in all months of winter. Really rare.

Dear Winter 2017/18,

I am writing to formally complain about the shabby treatment I’ve received at your hands over the last two and a bit months. While you have slowly but steadily (some might say sneakily) charmed the pants off other forum members by dishing out snowfall on a pretty regular and liberal basis (though NE members feel they have been forgotten since December - please sort that out) I’ve received nothing except one pathetic, patchy, wet dusting.

And not just me, I’m writing on behalf of other good folk ( @aggy & @ciel) who you have cruelly chosen to ignore while plying the likes of @Northern Strath and @shuggee with 5 and 10cm falls like they were going out of style. Even @CatchMyDrift has benefitted greatly from your generosity. While I understand that you would provide @101_North with the white stuff just to get him off your back what have I done to be treated so poorly? I’ve been positive and talked you up all winter, I’ve even gone out of my way to specify exactly what amount of love you were going to show to the individual members on this thread and yet still I get the shaft. And don’t give me that coastie bull, because you’ve pulled the finger out for @Hairy Celt @mistyqueen & @snowy owl.

Snow is like wealth, I believe some attempt should be made to distribute it fairly across the nation. You’re not adhering to this principle so I’m calling you out on it. Hell, even Crail got a few cms last week....after being ignored completely by your colleagues Winters 2011/12, 2012/13, 2013/14, 2014/15 & 2015/16. Between you and me Winter 2016/17 is held in pretty poor regard in these parts and yet even (s)he provided me with 3 fluffy cms last January.

In summary you have 18 days to sort this mess out. I demand to see AT LEAST a cm of snow on the ground here in Broughty Ferry, in Fettercairn and in Irvine or I’ll do nothing but badmouth you to Spring 2018 and your legacy will be tainted forever.

Yours sincerely,

Hawesy
