    The met office removed the yellow warning ⚠️ for snow and ice for here 😓

    Just means we can batter them if we all get buried.

    Never heard of him until yesterday, but he seems to be a bit notorious on these chats? Not sure if thats a good or bad thing....

    Only cos he said it was going to snow! in all fairness he's very educated and worth a follow, esp if you like storms in the summer

    Tired of all the snow photos? 😉 Let me help you out. Dreich and damp in the East Neuk, 3c.

    East Neuk/Morocco!  Date choring for the local laddies in summer?.

    Looks better here out the window than being outside. 1.4C now and wet snow. Been snowing a lot last night but barely replenishing itself. Good to see so many getting snow and those that missed out hopefully get a chance soon.

    Looks good up the hill mind. A wee wander later.

    Hopefully looking forward to more tonight/Thurs then a dip in surface temps to keep it about. No bad all in all.

    Met have updated the warning for Lothian and Borders for tonight - no real change in the detail (ending sooner) but warning area extended further south.

    Looking a lot better on the charts now for a good few hours of snow late evening for the central belt ❄️

    Hopefully some snow for us again tonight (what we had has melted just about) Might be in lurk mode though. If anyone reads the status updates on here more bad times for me i'm afraid 😞

    Interesting to see what happens tonight, bbc seem a bit more bullish about widespread snow and to lower levels

    Story of the winter for here, so close but so far.

    Now, if I live in the Rothienorman/Wartle area can I get the rare Sleet Warning badge from the Met Office seeing as they overlap both the snow and rain warnings over it!

    Currently 2.2c with blue sky visible over to the east; steady thaw of the layer of dandruff snow we got overnight.

    As others have noted, kids in full revolution mode here regarding homework 😧  Maybe need to teach them that not all revolutions work in favour of the revolutionaries 🙂

    Stupidly looked at the Met office forecast for my location and it has continuous snow symbols from now until 1.00pm tomorrow. It just stopped snowing.

    Would standing them up against a wall in front of a firing squad be too extreme?

    Well I'm still in the NE'rn warning area for snow but I'll wait and see. Wouldn't it be nice just for once for it to be 'nailed on'? It's been an OK winter for snow for most of us, especially compared to recent winters, but it's so tiring with the "will it, won't it?" stuff.

    Good luck to @Mr Frost you deserve some snow for all your great posting helping others

    and thoughts with @NUT

    On home schooling couldn't agree more... My poor kids getting no help as wife and I got so much work and the direct teaching support not been amazing which I understood. However I have friends at a neighbouring school with a very different experience which is the way I guess as there are great teachers and not so great just as in any profession. Also seems the older ones in some cases toiling more with the technology. 

    I have to stick kids on their devices for peace for meetings just no other way... 

    We certainly all appreciate teachers more in general 😁

    Discovered that a great alternative is to switch off the internet access to their specific devices (no sim cards allowed) 🙂  Always amazes how their negotiation and communication skills improve after that, and when they realise that there is no negotiating position other than get the job done, the work then gets completed.  What is really frustrating though is that there is so much high quality free training material out there these days, its getting the blighters to use them that is the challenge.  

    Oh, it's a weather forum, we actually got a brief glimpse of the sun just now.

    UKV for us has about 4-6 hours of wet snow i would say. Bit uncertain on how cold it will get.
