Literally!

Ferries cancelled from this afternoon and on Thursday and Friday too. All schools closed too!

Cue the panic buying of milk and bread. :mrgreen:

The power went off at 7.55 this morning, just as I had put on the kettle to fill up a couple of flasks ! Bugger! :mrgreen:

Predictions of severe weather didn't materialise down here. A little windy and quiet cold but no rain or snow storms like they suggested, and wind not strong enough to cause any damage.

We've had quite a bit of snow - a couple of inches - which is unusual for the island.

No snow but very very cold. Minus 8 at Avonbridge ( near Falkirk and very near the shoot) However when I arrived ( Sun 11.30 am ) the sun was out and it was surprisingly warm. Didn't last long but welcome none the less.
