Unbelievable?! However, I live in Livingston and have about 80cm of snow on my lawn. (Not drifts, just a straight blanket coverage.) Take care out there.

Scary pic. We were out on the planks on sunday too. Did you see the debris from the full depth avalanche on the NW flank of Allermuir, around Todhole Knowe? Big patch of grass, probably visible from the by-pass.

Stunning day!

Hah, that'd imply I was on some sort of ski tour and not on the way to the Steading for a pub lunch via Caerketton Hill!

2km long descent from the top to the pub. Planks on all the way except the fence round the golf course.

Lol, we came off Black Hill down to the forest and I suggested going to the Flotterstone and getting a taxi. It didn't work. We came back in the dark instead, stunning pink light on the back of Allermuir.
