    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!

    Was up for a peddle with the kids at the park yesterday afternoon and noted that while still plenty of drift and patches (and ice on paths - not fun!), the burns were really full and water now runnign off everywhere.  Streams where there are not normally streams, etc.  Looking at the snow gate cameras (love that site!) they all look damp but still holdign lots of snow - hopefully the the slower slaw continues, rather than the faster kind here.

    Found a dead bird under the last pile of snow in the back garden, which has now melted (snow, not the bird, though it is decaying - yuch!).  I must have not noticed and happened to have given it a ceremonial temporary burying last week.  It looks like a very small hawk.  Would post a photo, but something has eaten it's head clean off - will take a photo and clip it perhaps.  Do these hawks attack each other?  It looked like a smaller version of the attached (old photo of "something" eating a pigeon it caught in our old house back patio).

    Oh yeah, weather, windy and wild - I'm weird and quite like this sort of weather.  Just as well for me, as looks like for here at least we have a good while of rinse and repeat going on.

    Windy. Horizontal rain. Very mild, topped out at 10c yesterday but felt colder because of the wind. 5.2c here just now. Pure pants and no sign of any improvement on the horizon. Aye, definitely back to normal Skye weather! 🌀☂️😒😩

    Yes, I went down on ice and broke a fibula. I now know what breaking bone sounds like 😵.  You'll be getting ever more demented updates for a few weeks 🤡🦴💩

    Breezy again just like the last few days but sunny with showers to the west that look wintry probably only over the higher hills

    Ground beginning to dry as last of frost leaves. Currently 6c.First day however that sitting in a south facing room that the sun on your face has felt warm and the room is actally heating up. We mostly abandon these rooms in winter as the strong winds make them very cold and retreat to the north side of the house where the rayburn is.

    A good few weeks I think. Not really sure yet. I'll post updates here to keep up with the other wounded warriors!

    Ceremonial spring opening of a living room window happened at lunchtime there. Just lasted an hour, as is normally the case when I remember it’s still chilly, but it’s a big moment in the year. Earlier a bit this year probably because I’m home during the day, it tends to happen in mid-March.

    Spring is coming. Quite happy to abandon snow chases for low lying areas now. I’m sure those of you at height will get a few more days of lying snow but aside from a few occasional snow flurries or showers if we get a cold spell in March I think that’s our whack.

    Do they have you in a splint  or a cast?

    They sent me home in a sling.   I'm afraid I  'slung'  it!   It was the most uncomfortable, unfathomable, infuriating, extremely bulky, jaggy piece of equipment that I have ever had to deal with.   DEFINITELY designed by a man!   It looked and felt like I was wearing what I can only describe as an upside-down dog coat, with the open side facing upwards.  I should really go and count the number of straps and clips (large and small)  attached to this THING!   I am now wearing the much more serviceable, traditional, cotton triangular type.   Works a treat.

    A nice bright day again today with mainly high, wispy cloud letting through occasional sunshine. Even the slabs and decking at the back have dried out. Almost seems like spring, except I've seen the forecast.

    Temperature currently 8.1deg.C down from a max of 8.9deg.C at 13:58 and up from a min of 4.4deg.C at 01:21, humidity is 73%, wind 3 to 6mph moving from south-southwesterly to south-southeasterly with a max gust of 20mph at 14:04, pressure is 999.5hPa steady, there's been 3.8mm of rain today and 4.4mm in the last 24 hours and cloud cover is 6/8 and mostly thin.

    Right, now I'm off on a ward round to visit Sanserit, Blitzen and Heilan Coo, so you lot, stand by your beds, lift you paper nighties, bend over and cough...

    If I bend over, more likely to fart than cough so stand back you dirty old man,

    Depends on your point of view. From my point of view you're third in the queue anyway. Don't hold your breath.

    So only the coughing bit eludes you?

    Excellent.
