Wednesday 3 February

Awoke to a cold and icy morning, but for a while, the sun was out. This has now disappeared behind a thickening veil of cloud which is moving up from the southwest. As I was waiting in a shop, I caught sight of a TV screen where a weather forecaster was warning of more of the white stuff. The pavements here are icerinks a lot of the time, and there is no improvement imminent.

Locally, the council have announced they intend to close 18 primary schools over a 7-year period, ending in 1918. No, I'm not joking. The last line in the article on Hebrides News states that "... schools to close in 1918".


  1. Glad to hear you had a safe and uneventful journey. What a difference it was from your past couple of episodes.

  2. The sun is shining here today as well, but tomorrow brings more rain and possibly sleet. I love winter, but I am beginng to wish for Spring!! Stay safe and warm!!

  3. We had snow yesterday then it rained lightly through the night. What a relief to waken up to that even though we had fog.
    Nice to see that you got home safely Guido.

    I wouldn't mind going back in time but not that far. lol
    Take care out and about.
