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!

    Bit of a lull between showers. Depth wise we're around 8cm level, maybe a bit more. Step out the back door though and that bit of the garden is currently drifted to 20cm! 

    Similar amounts here should mange the 10cm I was hoping for easily ❄️❄️

    Was looking at that there - looks like it’s forming into a more organised band as it moves West. This could end up being close to 2018 if things progress at it looks as they may over the next 12-24 hours!

    Shame that big blob is missing us to the north. Should catch a bit from the bottom end though

    Still loads of time yet. Still got right through til early hours Wednesday morning and then anything can happen after that too. 

    I've not measured but I reckon we'll be at the 10cm mark by now, plenty more to come for many 

     

    * Lining up nicely for Cumbernauld just now

    Aye, you can get to 20cm with 6 hours of being under these showers...

    I like our use of the word “blob” here - can we vote to use this in a technical context moving forward? “Lots of blobby blobs expected to move in westwards overnight with a potential for more sustained blobs as the blobbiness intensifies.”

    Yeah I kept thinking the next blob (towards Edinburgh) was going to miss us but it grew a bit to the south as it hit land! Really incredible stuff, and the angry man seems set to deliver for the next 20 minutes or so here first at pretty much the same ridiculous intensity it has been on and off all night. 

    At this point, I'm struggling to see how this is an overestimate, at least for here (probably keek for the Northwest Highlands to be fair😂)euro4_uk1-46-35-0.thumb.png.503d4bb5284f1063b0d7b254391ae967.png

    I can see now how easy that is once you have a very heavy band . Honestly 2 inches there about from the last hour . Absolutely incredible stuff never ever seen snow like it

    To be fair to the Met Office, I checked to see how Windy Wilson's forecast was faring, and it's not much better! 

    Some of it is fair but random, sporadic and isolated this is not😂

    This rather Long snow band is the producing the worst conditions I’ve ever seen, another 2cm in 20 mins. Drifts of near 15cm here now. Accidents all over the place, dual carriageway has 2/3cm on it alone

    In 2010 I had really good winter rubber on my BMW and led many a poor soul into trouble, all of those folk thinking if a beemer can manage that then we're bound to be ok 😈

    I don’t even remember but it was a lot! Just check these icicles out too. Pretty sure the night king used one of those to kill a dragon 😅

    It does look like the line is gradually nudging north a bit, the showers here are starting to shift on a more northerly trajectory for example so we're at the southern end rather than really in the middle as we were for most of the evening. It's not a clear cut movement and I doubt it'll be much but Tayside and north Fife (and probably Stirling and Clacks too) will likely see more action overnight than this evening.

    I think it's the same wording he's used for a couple of days judging by the other tweets, but while it was true earlier (well for central Scotland at least) and yesterday things have changed a bit this evening to say the least...
