Monday 25 March



Spring is here according to the calendar, but the people in the south and west of Scotland, and in the north of England and Northern Ireland do not agree. Vast drifts of snow, up to 20 feet in height, have blocked roads, torn down overhead powerlines and buried livestock alive. Huge losses in sheep and cattle are feared, Arran is off power as are parts of the Kintyre peninsula. Unbelievable. Although we "only" have a cold wind and not much sun, winter is continuing under the banner of spring.

  1. If it wasn't for the winds the snow would not have blown into such deep drifts. The winds just blasted everything in its path. It was truly awful to experience it! We are well and truly gripped in this arctic weather Guido. It's not nice at all out there!
    I don't know how the crocus are still flowering in my garden. They have disappeared and re-apeared so many times from being covered in snow. Such delicate flowers yet tenacious in the face of winters storms. Amazing!
