What's the weather like in your area?

Still no snow. (I'm sure I'll have to change the record soon!)

Sunny most of the day & 3-4c.

Our first snowdrop came out a few days ago, but the stem is barely long enough to hold the head clear of the ground!

Still no snow   yet. Temp about 2-3c & yesterday's bitter wind seems warmer (well, less freezing cold!)

Planted some £1 a packet tulips (from yesterday's foray to the gc) into a pot this morning; the ground's pretty frozen still. Some of the plants which haven't lost their leaves like the heucheras & wallflowers are looking very sorry for themselves - hopefully we'll get a warmer spell & they can drink then.

Still no snow, but had to be in & out a bit today & it's really cold & unpleasant. Although the car was showing 2c the wind makes it feel much much colder. Very overcast too; was very pleased to get indoors!

Has anyone got any snow yet?

Still nothing but we are at about sea level & near the Beauly Firth. On Friday evening we went through Inverness & as we climbed up the A9 about a mile to the south there was about 1" with a little more during the evening. That area is above the snow line & always gets some when many other areas don't.

I've just looked at the traffic cameras across the highlands & there appears to be snow showing on the verges around most of them, but the roads are clear.

A bit dull & overcast here, after several days of bright sunshine, albeit cold, with the temp now about 1c.

Being January with clear night skies I have been expecting the temps to drop to minus double figures but have been having "only" down to about -5c.

Still no snow yet.

Our bin is going out & even with several inches of snow on it, it will be emptied, they have to really as snow is such a regular occurance here.

I really do have respect for the snowplough/gritter drivers; don't know how they do it as they drive on ungritted roads! Actually one did slip over a couple of years back, unfortunately it was on a narrow road with a steep hillside & it went over the edge. Luckily the driver was fine but recovering such a large, heavy vehicle up the slope was another matter! Makes me shudder just to think about it.

Ah well, on with the marmalade!

Hope it's not as bad as they say it's going to be for you all.

A friend slipped over on ice yesterday & broke a finger; miles from anywhere, on her own & no mobile reception, she was so lucky that it wasn't worse.  So please take care folks!

+2c when I got in at 10 o'clock.

According to this evening's forecast we should be just too far north for tomorrow's snow.  However Friday (when we're due to be out for the evening) looks like a different story ................

Was -4c here at 8 o'clock this morning; about 1c during the day & a bit overcast; it's currently .8c in the shed.

They keep telling us that the snow is coming...........
