The first snow of the season arrived last Friday. We didn’t get a huge amount in Aberdeen but enough for me to get excited and for it to look Christmassy. I went for a bike ride on Sunday and this was the scene.
On Friday night we got hit by Storm Arwen which was fierce and claimed three lives. Many people are still without power since Friday night including Braemar which went down to -8C. It must be very cold to not have any power in -8C temperatures.
I went to my allotment yesterday expecting things to be in disarray but everything was fine. I was amazed. All my structures were still standing and the plants survived.
We’re enjoying the leeks very much.
Elizabeth has her national highland dance exam next month and just got her uniform. She tried it on today and looks splendid! If I’d known the paraphernalia for highland dance would be so expensive I. may not have signed her up for it but she loves it and it’s wonderful to see her dance.
