Predictions Of A Cold Winter

It's certainly started out as cold winter, even though we've not reached December yet. We've had many very cold mornings already with white on the grass and car.

We love the snow, we think it makes everywhere look beautiful, even Loch Ness which is stunning any time of year. And the Met Office this week are predicting a colder than usual winter in the UK, hopefully that means lots of snow in the highlands.

Here are a couple of fond memories of cold winter mornings around Dores beach and Pottery House.

Winter Is Coming

We had hardly any frosts last winter at all, however this year here we are in mid November and it's white on the ground this morning.

And we've already seen snow on the tops of the mountains on the other side of Loch Ness from us.

The hens weren't so keep on the cold though, I threw a few food scraps out to them this morning, as I always do, and i was quite a while before they'd venture out of their house to investigate. Normally there's an undignified scramble to get out the hen house door when I throw something in their run.

Hopefully the sign of a cold, but sunny sunny winter to come.
