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.
