/ Snowing like crazy here in Juteopolis
If this is what it's like at sea level, what must it be like on Cairn Gorm?!
And it's forecast to carry on ALL WEEK. Big up for the skiers :-)
Snowing like crazy (southern Alps) and has been for 24 hours.
A few power cuts this morning as the weight of the snow stretched the power lines, but hasn't been too bad.
On Saturday it felt like Spring, as most of the valley-level snow had melted and it was lovely in the afternoon sun.
Still snowing... and when I say "still" I mean it hasn't stopped, or barely, since my OP...
ah, cue for a song;
'and if it snows, that stretch down south won't ever stand the strain'
The snow-plow went through about 30mins ago.
Does that mean the Constitution St. piste is nick then? I've only ever sledged it once.
Aha! That's a REALLY useful link. Thank you!
The bit just outside Braemar on that picture doesn't look any different from here in Dundee really, but I expect it's pretty nuts up at the top of the road.
West Park Road would be in grand fettle, it would be perfect fluffy powder going at about Red, except the buggers keep driving up and down it :-)
The Hulltoon is a cat 4 avalanche risk, need to get it sorted fast, for this weeks Ski Sunday!
Within five minutes the wheels will be off the Broadcast Support vans. Within ten they'll have nicked all the skis. Within fifteen they'll have nicked all the skiers as well...

You'll never guess what the weather's doing now!
But here's a clue: it begins with "sn" and ends with "owing" :-)

Agreed Tim. My son also started an 8-month stint at RAF Leucars today - nice introduction to a Scottish winter :)
Shock news! Earthquake devastates the Hulltoon! Everything destroyed! Over £1.49's worth of damage!
...You heard it here first

now if only there could be an aftershock that reduced dens park to a pile of rubble, that would just make my day!
Isn't it a pile of rubble already?
Yes, our snow is turning pretty wet. I can see my car roof again, for the first time in 48 hours. Basically, it's vile out there. Oh the joys of working at home :-)
