Proper Winter

At last proper winter with proper snow, WooHoo! Unfortunately had to watch most of through a window at nighttime due to Nightshift, but did manage to get out a bit.  Before my nights I managed to get out and about with Ian and Mike to the hermitage on a snowy night. None of us remembered a […]

Snow in Little Glenshee

After getting some brand new tyres on the front of the car I decided that they needed to be tested for their “B Grade” performance in the snow – and the white stuff was in plentiful supply! Time restrictions meant that we couldn’t go far so we returned to Little Glenshee, knowing that there would […]

The Hermitage – what a mess!

On my Sunday off (yesterday) I grabbed the family and went for a walk at Dunkeld’s Hermitage area, a hugely popular tourist spot. Despite the cold, snow and ice, it was quite busy with well-wrapped peeps. First thing I noted was the sign warning of closed areas due to storm damage from the recent high […]

1st Snow of winter

North Inch Perth:  Lunchtime, Tues Nov 30th Winter has most definitely started and the the weather has been weird and wonderful with heavy snow, freezing temperatures and thunder and lightning.

Thundersnow!

Two days of solid snow has trapped my car in the driveway and diddled me out of nine hours pay yesterday, thanks to the lack of buses or any other means to get to work. However today the sky is blue and the white stuff seems to be starting to thaw… if only just! Many […]

Cold and Misty Perth

Location: Perth| Time: 09th January 15:30ish So had just got home after another long sleepover shift and was feeling a little drained and down.

South Inch Perth

Christmas Day Walk – Quarrymill
