Storms then Snow!

We were battered around this weekend with Storm Ciara!!! What a name!  We got up on Sunday morning with it still blowing a gale and a tree branch was on our patio and we have no idea where it came from!!!  Treacle was not happy on Saturday evening with the wind and slept in her basket downstairs next to my desk.  It kept me awake most of the night. 

DH, Eldest and I went out for dinner on Saturday and it was a lovely evening.  A lovely restaurant and the food was good!

DH is away all week on business at an exhibition and Eldest was out at physio and then ran some errands.  He got back at lunch and then ten minutes after he was back this started:


It came down thick and fast and settled really quickly, although it was dry snow it has already started to melt!!!!


Treacle had fun in it for a while!!!


But then hated being dried when she came in by Eldest!!!


In contrast DH and I were in Scotland last week for three days and we had glorious weather.  Here are some pictures.  We were right up at where we stay on holiday, just a shame we couldn’t stay longer!!!!


Baxter’s Visitors Centre – Great place to visit and their restaurant is really good.


Looking down to the River Spey.


Dusk coming.


Cold but bright sunshine.


Winter still has a hold here but we saw the sun.


Across the moors from Elgin back to Edinburgh.


There was some snow on the mountains.


Not enough for the ski lift to be working though!

It was a long few days but great to spend time up there.  We will be back at Easter for a holiday and can’t wait.

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend and if you are in the UK were safe and sound after the storm!!!  Have a great week.

Hugs, Susie xx

    Yay for snow for Treacle!!! Such gorgeous vistas on your trip!! I love how the mountains unfold, one behind the other. When storms blow in, downstairs is definitely quieter! I’m certainly glad the storm waited until you got safely home from Scotland to hit and I hope DH doesn’t have his travels impacted by the weather.
