Some more pics from this morning in the Lomond Hills. Just the most sublime colours at sunrise. We had 12cm this morning, sunny all day except for a slight freshening up in the afternoon, now -0.7C an

Standing an impressive 5ft 5in tall - the kids have done well with limited resources ?

The snow still hasn't come to anything beyond a slushy mess at the house so we went to the snow. At the small car park at the top of Glen Ogle it was proper snow with a few inches on the ground. By th

My new weather station arrived at 2pm and following a dash to B&Q in the middle of a squall to get some clips to strap the external unit to a clothes pole, I read the instructions, put it all together and installed the various bits. Obviously, at the moment I switched it on, the wind dropped to zero and the rain went off so it's not showing nuffing now.

Get well soon, I hope it's not the virus.

I don't drink any more but that Dark Island is a gorgeous beer, I have filtered many of them through the old kidneys and liver.

I'm just chilling watching TV after back to back shifts topped off by 200+ mile drive to get the kids down for the weekend. Counting down the weeks to a wee staycation assuming the virus does one, I'm not fancying my chances. Also looking forward to a few decent weather days off work and a chance to retame the wild jungle that used to be my garden.

Used to be one of my favourites but I've found as I've aged I prefer a lighter, fruitier beer. Normal tipple these days though is brandy & lemonade, so I've probably officially become 'old'. 

A day of two half here weather wise. Cool and cloudy in the morning but much brighter and warmer in the afternoon.

Heavy cold for me too. Still managed a bottle of Sauvignon and then a mug of hot honey and lemon with a tot of whisky before bed to clear the airwaves. 
A wet morning here before a bright and breezy afternoon. Max of 16.2C in the sun this afternoon.

@CatchMyDrift definitely not the coronavirus that has already been and gone asymptomatic so i was lucky I guess.This cold is worse so far, maybe it's man flu. Mrs snaw has no sympathy at all..😥

Oh yes this is a weather forum. So i guess I best talk about that. 

Its a beautiful morning here, clear skies  a slight breeze and sunshine 🌞 is this the mega heatwave they have been going on about in the mad house?? I bet it rains later 😂😂

Have a great weekend all im away for a lemsip and maybe something added 😉

You got away lucky if you had the coronavirus with no symptoms, whatever virus I had in Feb/March is still lingering slightly in my lungs. But get well soon from your lurgy 👍

Cloudy and breezy here at the moment, I think the heatwave is due Monday & Tuesday?

@CatchMyDrift I was very lucky, 3 kids had 2 or 3 days of fever and a cough one of them had headache and total loss of taste etc..  mrs snaw was in bed for a week very unwell. She was very lucky considering her long list of health problems..

And in weather news that burning glowing ball in the sky continues to shine in the sky. Wind has picked up a bit in the last hour or so..

Very autumnal today with a  strong wind and one sharp shower.Now clouding over from the west and 12c.Still combines going but getting higher up the hill where crops are later. Making it feel even more autumnal is me cutting the old beech hedge. Always leave it  till a cooler /windy day as its the itchiest job on earth and you want as much debris as possible blowing away from you. Just the top to do which young Mr Northernlights can help me  with another day

Well the rain has just about reached here but seems to fade out as it reaches us  and it has done this several times in the last hour.The mountains to the west are stealing a lot of it. The rain shadow effect in full operation.

I am sure it will get here eventually but at least its giving the farm where young Mr Northernlights is working today carting grain a chance to finish harvest.    Its the contractors final field of combining this harvest so I hope it holds off long enough for them to finish. Super dry grain after such a windy day.

Still dry, quite interesting looking at the radar as rain  dissolves just about over us.Can hear the hum of combines brought to us on the fresh west wind.

Totally not weather related but how many of you have dogs, how did you decide on breed and where did you get them? 

Now the kids are both in secondary school we're considering getting a dog, not rushing into anything, just doing some research at the moment. We have two cats so it'll need to be cat compatible and we're thinking of a medium sized dog (not huge but definitely not a handbag dog).

We like to walk so energetic dogs no problem. Anyone have any advice? 

Weather turning Autumnal now, leaves changing and the geese are flying south.

It has looked as if heavy rain was close for much of the day here but it has only recently started raining. Max of 16.1C and breezy.
@snowidea

Our last dog was a Cocker Spaniel and we found that it was both good with the cat and also needed a good walking mileage. Ours wasn't keen on heavy rain so we could get away without getting drenched if it was pouring too!
