My nephew and his wife and baby daughter set off from Clacks about 3pm up the A9 to Inverness - any word on what it's like?

All have arrived - not too bad a journey till they got to my sister's cul de sac.  (The A9 had been snow ploughed.) Some idiot 4 x 4 driver visiting a neighbour had left his vehicle sticking out in the middle of the road so the boys and my brother-in-law had to try to get round it and got stuck in 2 feet of snow.  So they got the wives and babies inside in the warm, knocked on the neighbour's door and asked if they'd help dig the three cars out.  All done in good spirits I believe and they are all sipping brandies now - I'm off to get my New Year swally ready!

Goodness, you are having a lot of snow up there.  Do hope you and your animals keep safe  I saw on our local news that a man from nearby us, had been killed in an avalanche in Torrin, and two on Ben Nevis.  Such a tragedy.

We had more snow last night, and some of the main routes are still closed off even tonight......but nowhere near as bad as your snow.  Its a very frosty night tonight, and -7.2 degrees - a bit chilly in our farmhouse with no central heating, just one coal fire - I have got a good few layers of clothes on!!

I'm envious!  We are in a no snow pocket here.  Loads of people near us have snow, but not us!  Not fair.

It must be getting bad up there, we had no snow yesterday, first day since the 19th December... but it is making up for it today it has been snowing quite heavy now for the last 2 1/2 hours... was out getting chicken supplies today and the bloke at the Drum said that it is going to last for a least another 2 weeks...... Hope you and your animals are safe...
