    Ladies and gentlemen you are not going to believe it. After a wait of almost 3 years... 😮  

    I don't suppose I have anything to complain about this winter...      .      

    I've waited years to get a picture of the house covered with snow.  Finally!

    0.0C and still snowing.  It's the slowest accumulation ever!

    There’s some intermittent light rain here if that is any consolation.

    Right through this spell we've been on the wrong side of marginal be it precip, height or anything else. What we've got this morning as a perfect example of this  - cold, wet, damp rain. Forecast still claiming snow later but I've long given up on this. Unless its an old-style sustained northerly then winters of old are finished.

    I got a message last night from my boss about ‘Charles Sna’ that was mentioned a couple of pages back. Seems that while he was out clearing roads around Strathdon, the weight of sna on the roof of one of the cattle courts brought it down. Thankfully no one hurt and all the beasts were out but it leaves him looking for housing for the cattle for the foreseeable.

    1489ft seems to be the highest point in Nenthead - 454 metres is the highest point I could find with the lowest point being around 425. Yep, that's high! 

    I've actually heard that a place called Coalcleugh near Allenheads is the highest in Britain

    @LomondSnowstorm I notice you tend to go with the 300m wet bulb freezing level. I always thought 200m was the rough indicator for snow at sea level? Happy to stand corrected on that!

    I'd probably go with 200m for sea level too actually, I've seen 200-300m quoted too depending on the situation but it probably comes from living in places around 50-100m altitude where 300m is generally fine for snow.
