I’ve been in Scotland a week now and was able to take a few photos, so I thought you might like to see a couple of them. When I arrived in the UK, the whole country had a blanket of snow everywhere. Which does happen, but not very often. Two days ago it snowed all day (around 6-8 inches). And all of the children in the village went sledding (they call it sledging in this part of the world). It warmed up a little bit that night and by the next morning almost all of the snow that had been here for two weeks was gone! I had to rub my eyes in disbelief, yes mom, I know….”Don’t Rub Your Eyes!” There is a river that runs next to the village and in one night it went from running half full to almost overflowing it’s banks. It’s supposed to rain for the next 5 days and there are flood watches posted.
I’m helping a friend rip up carpet, linoleum and a sandstone floor, plus doing some fix it jobs, so I will be posting less frequently than in the past. And it’s wet outside. They have a saying here in Scotland, “If you don’t like the weather, wait ten minutes and it will change”. I have found this to be very true in my many visits to Scotland. I think it’s due to being a narrow land mass, not tall mountains and right in the path of storms coming in from the Atlantic headed to Europe.
