It's still a bit early for us to be having so much snow, although much of north east Scotland and North east England have had substantial falls for a week now. This morning I was awakened by a very loud banging (I thought it was a bomb!) and a light flashing through a chink in the curtains. It continued at intervals for several hours and turned out to be a thunderstorm...in a snowstorm and must have been overhead, going by the noise....extremely bizarre.
I had been contemplating going to a show at Lanark today but did know that the forecast was for snow. It is almost as deep, but not quite ....YET...as last year., and it is snowing very heavily again.......Maybe we will get a sudden thaw! (I can dream).
