    Just to put our recent grim weather in perspective! 

    Deadly tornadoes kill seven in Nashville, Tennessee

    Sadly I have colleagues caught up in this mess. One colleagues parents have lost their house. Another lives in an area where some of her neighbours have lost everything. She was incredibly lucky!

    Tornadoes are scary enough during daylight but going through such a hugely populated area in the early hours of the morning must be absolutely terrifying for the people who live in these places.

    Tornado season does not peak until April/May as well - hopefully no more casualties from Nashville or anywhere else over the coming months.

    @101_North sorry to hear that hope they are all ok. And @Mr Frost I have been posting the twitter pics and vids in the other thread and here is the live news link https://youtu.be/NwI9TspJFW8

    Night time tornadoes must be terrifying, thoughts and prayers to all those affected and it will be interesting to see the rating the tornadoes get once they do the damage surveys but looking at the pics probably at least F3?

    That image you linked too is actually an area in East Nashville where I went a few times when I was there recently! Flattened! Unreal.

    The one remaining colleague has finally got a call through to our manager. She is OK but she's stuck in her house with no power or WiFi. She can't get out due to debris blocking both her exits and is just waiting for the emergency services to arrive. Which given she's OK might be quite some time. Scary stuff!

    The operators of a Scottish snowsports centre say they are enjoying the best snow conditions in six years. Glencoe Mountain...

    It's a sure sign of a switch in the weather when the afternoon pics are cloudscapes and not landscapes.

    Hopefully there's a switch in how I'm feeling too as I've had the stinkiest cold for what seems like forever ?

    It was a nice sunny day here in Dunoon the best day of weather we've had in a few days after going about 5 days straight with heavy showers and mostly cloudy.

    Went out this afternoon to take some photos a few of the hills still with snow on them,

    Some boats sitting outside Greenock in the distance,

    A look over to Gourock,

    And looking over to Gourock again possibly some of Greenock and I believe that's also Erskine bridge in the distance as well just shows you how good the visibility was today.

    Colder on the commute today. -4C at the house, -5C and light snow between Dunecht and Elrick. Sun starting to rise in Aberdeen, another bright sunny day on the cards.

    Glorious sunrise this morning, no picture as I was too busy trying to coax my tortie cat out from under the (leaking) shower where she was stuck. Succeeded at last by squirting her with son's water pistol. Now she's sulking. 

    Looks like it's going to be a nice enough day today. Roll on the summer.

    Thanks for all your tips about Scotland. I've booked to go to.............the rocky mountains, Canada lol. I figured I'll go for guaranteed snow, though Glencoe is looking pretty good right now.

    My little girl is going on holiday to Scotland with her grandparents next week - I've instructed them to travel to the snow so I can live vicariously through her for now ?

    Fine Frosty  start here at 0c.Ben Wyvis looking resplendant in its  very thick winter coat.Probably 2 to 3 metres thick with the hills to the west looking the same. Glad the ski operators are getting a chance to get some income.Should last till late  spring  end of  May  possibly. Somewhere on the Scottish Mountains should manage some good Midsummers day skiing unless there is a lot of warm rain.

    Another stunning morning, no doubt there will be some decent convective cloudscapes later:
