Hello all - back from the hill - snowy but fine BL
Weather was lovely on the way there, and Ben Lomond was shining bright and white as I passed, with people out canoeing on the loch. The clag was down at about 2,000 feet or so on the hill I was on, so no views after that. I did get some nice icicles...pix I mean, not hanging from my nose
I can't remember what you've all been saying now
Kangaroo meat, snowdrops showing, golf courses, flooding and a petition. I will sign that too
Have to agree with you re the housing on stilts Obelixx. I was just saying that yesterday at work. Why do we keep allowing building on floodwater sites too? If they used the stilt method I could understand, but they just whack on the paving and shove up a load of houses. I think councils will allow almost anything if the money's right
The emergency services are damned if they do and damned if they don't. Can you imaging the stooshie if they'd just said 'Aye it's all fine' and then hundreds of people needed rescuing from their ruined homes.
Better go and have a shower now that I've had a cuppa. Perhaps some soup too
