Sunday 2 December

After a slight overnight frost (-1C / 30F), the day dawned cold but bright. Cloud later built into isolated showers, which (here) appeared to be of rain only. As I type this, there are reports of snow on the Scottish mainland, which could accumulate to 15 cm / 6 inches on the mountains.

I spent the afternoon preparing my 40-odd Christmas cards for despatch. About half of those go to the USA. Printing the cards and envelopes and writing the messages. Tomorrow, I shall proceed to the Post Office to obtain postage. This also includes 5 Postcrossing cards, which go to Switzerland, Germany, Holland, Russia and the USA.

Today was another day for great cloudscapes, and I share a handful of pics below.
