Bunny ...
Think it's your turn for snow frank about 7 inches in forest just hiked with dog.
Highland Jeannie

Woke up to a couple of inches of snow, now rapidly melting , assisted by some heavy rain a while ago.  A fair bit of blue sky about; "enough to make a sailor a pair of trousers or a Scotsman a kilt"  depending on who you're talking to!

Stormy last night. Windy now. Colder. But daffodils everywhere in cornwall

Bunny it is never my turn for snow even though pictures exist of me sledding down the steep banks behind my childhood home covered with the stuff, at least we did have seasons back then, "whatever happened to seasons" I ask.
Jeannie "when did Scotsmen wear blue kilts"? What was under the kilt may have been blue and the bonnets they droned about on the hillsides were blue, how I wished them over the border, we lads in trews would give them three rousing choruses of Lily Marlene to wind them up. A few pints and a fight usually sorted it out, is Stirling Castle any warmer yet.
The snow is not giving here and it is getting colder actually it looks like more on the way.

Eek, we've just had a heavy snowstorm. Still coming down, but at least it's a lot lighter. J.

Yes, I've often wondered what a light blue sky & a kilt had in common - mind you the sailors' blue is a lot darker too! I'm far too much of a lady to be thinking about what is underneath (or its' colour)

When we visited Stirling Castle it was a lovely summer day - mind you, OH nearly fell over the edge as he stepped back to take a photo - it's a long way down.....

Snow all gone, showery, light breeze, about 5c.

"Gremlins" Jeannie, I hit the blue quote button that appears on the right hand corner of the box when you move the cursor over it then on the quote marks on top of my reply box, it works. As to what is under a kilt, hairy legs with knobbly knees big feet on the end wrapped in boots gaiters and hose tops plus a tiny dirk "err" knife thin-gee I mean stuck in hose top. If they got stroppy we pulled our bayonets out much longer and much more dangerous, or so I was told.

Our snow has also gone a quick shower sent it on its way, bitter cold now though.

Hi I'm in

Still windy and very cold but no where near as bad as yesterday. Sky is high and blueish, sun is peeking through, but no warmth!

At least you're back now.

And not good news Insomnia, I woke up to clear sky and sunshine, the Primroses were smiling at me and all was well with the world, apart from the thread would not work.
Half an hour ago the window cleaner came and did a good job washing everything in sight including the conservatory, as he walked out of the drive it went dark and now we have a snowstorm.
Methinks I should go back to bed and get up the other side side.

Bunny ...
Told you the snow was your turn frank glorious here , windy but cold, cleaning house even the windows ....
Miss Becks

No Frank! Don't be downhearted! What's happening is, we're having all the bad weather possible now, at the start of the year, to make way for all the glorious weather to come. Mother nature is just getting it all out of her system, before making it up to us for last year. Just bear with it for a few more weeks.

I do not do downhearted Insomnia just getting out of bed the wrong side at times.
At this moment in time we are back to clear sky and sunshine so are we getting it all in one day I ask?
Knowing our local weather I sit back and wait at the moment with a cup of tea and a biscuit, Omelette for tea so the biscuit is allowed.

You do feel a bit bereft when you are locked out. Frank.
