    That wee mini blob over me really intensified in matter of miles on the radar! Absolutely thumping it down!

    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!

    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.  

    Yeah but please don’t Hogg itnwe

    want it back 🤪

    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 😅

    We're currently at -24/-30 in blazing sunshine with a smir of diamond dust causing the world to flash and sparkle, we have about a foot of snow on the ground much of which is compressed white ice since it's been there for months. Yes I am a lucky bugger but I really don't recommend the route I took to get here, there must be an easier way to reach glory. I have to admit that for the first time I am feeling a tiny bit homesick today, not for the weather but simply cos it's not the same on here having some mad banter with you lot 😥🤣🤣

    Did u mean to get stuck in Canada ? 
     

    I live Canada absolutely stunning country

    Yeah I'm tracking them all with the marker pen on the laptop screen 😄

    Had a wee fright 10 minutes ago when I tried to clean the marker pen off the touch screen and it wouldn't come off. Luckily these COVID alcohol wipes have more than one use.... Would have been hard to explain the markings on the screen to the wife if I hadn't got them off 😄

    Hahaha 😂🤣 My wife just doesn't get it! She thinks I'm a lost cause!! Thankfully the A1 is still my friend! Anything running down that this evening is a direct hit! 

    And that 'mini' blob has turned into the best shower for a while!

    Pretty decent hit off the bottom of that blob! 

    I’m lost with what blob is what but it’s snowing heavily again ❄️❄️

    Every time a blob passes over there is pretty much 10 minutes of, what seems to be almost daylight. Right now it is pitch black out the back garden (facing due East) next time there is a blob I can see everything. The blob sky is so loaded with the white stuff it's almost illuminating 😍

    Haha, all that stressing earlier is forgotten now.😂

    Although I do agree it has been a strange start to this easterly and like you, I expected more widespread showers from the off rather than waiting on convergence zones.

    Ha, pathetic wasn't it! Was completely doubting what I thought I knew about what happens here in these situations. Ultimately it has indeed done the business. Phew. 😄

    We had a minor streamer this morning...but even though it probably snowed a couple of hours it was like powder and only gave an extra cm or so. We are on day 48 with snow laying here continuously...54 days laying since 1st December. Depth at present is about 30 cm, much deeper in drifts. Sunny afternoon and max -3C. Lost count of ice days...Pic of road near house- they stopped clearing side roads due to cut backs🤬.

    That's incredible stats. Unusual for location or par for the course?

    There's something wonderful watching these brightly coloured blobs subsume half the country, this one looks especially blobby and about as intense as we've had I'd say if it holds up ok:

    So glad I changed my work day , however if things keep going the way they are I believe there is a good chance I won’t get the car out the street on Wednesday 

    can confirm that blob is blobby indeed

    What was everyone’s totals during that 

     

    I had zero 😂

    You've upgraded from 0 to like 2 feet or so in 2018 😂 It was crazy in Cumbernauld - I remember working there at the time and folk couldn't get out at all, cars stranded on the M80 etc

    If I still lived in Edinburgh I'd never be satisfied until the snow was actually on and settling - I'm still scarred from 2012/13 when it was permanently half a degree too warm to lie in town 😂
