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!

    Minimum overnight temperatures for me were -5.8C / -7.2C DP I’ve said before but it usually takes an effort to get frosts here and been at this house since 2014 only the 2018 beast and possibly one or two other nights have got down to that temperature. Think the line of showers could reach eastern Fife.

    That line of showers is very slow moving at the moment for sure, shame their not over land before the wind starts picking up tonight from the s.e

    I'm not. 2010 saw massive flooding when it started thawing, plus gutters and slates coming down. And something not many people even consider, but very sharp icicles suddenly unexpectedly plummeting to the ground as people are walking past.

    Apart from some snow showers tonight and tomorrow and a snow/rain breakdown event there is not much in the way of precipitation in the next week  as far as I can see

    I reckon it will be a slow melt and little in the way of a breakdown event snow to rain across the country,if the sun gets out after Sunday it will melt it but no rapid thaw for me if cloudy it's surprising how snow sticks around at below 6c especially if little wind ,of course I might be talking rubbish and it melts on an hour 😂😂

    That was what happened in 2010. The problem was the the bottom layer of snow had constantly melted with heat escaping through roofs, and then froze again because of the snow sitting on top of it. So when the thaw started, even though it was slow, because the bottom layer of snow had essentially become separated from the layer above it - it started sliding well before the vast bulk of the snow on top of it was actually ready to move. This meant that the weight of the snow pushing down on the slippy layer - brought down slates when the bottom layer started sliding.

    Tricky to work out how it will play out that's for sure I remember lots of guttering giving way in 2010 we had little in the way of sunshine along the coast today so no real sun melt and looks like little sun for us in the next few days maybe that will lessen the impact here

    -0.1c/2.8c.

    Checked back our 24hr records and they revealed that we actually got down to 8.3c at 08.10am which was lower than my first post this morning.

    😊

    Edit: -8.3 C 😉

    Too many deer anyway. The only way the estates maintain excessive populations is by winter feeding.

    Roe deer in the woods are too numerous as well but they're more able to find food in these conditions.

    They feed the 'wild' deer and the pheasants and if you touched one they'd phone the police but when one of them hits your car it's tough luck on you as they are 'wild' animals.
