I was running late for work this morning and didn't dry my hair properly when I came out of the shower... By the time I had walked from my house to my work, my hair had frozen. Brrrrr.

Enjoy your inevitable cold! :lol:

In the middle of Perth, the Tay is freezing over: two large banks of ice are forming and gradually reaching towards one another. With the forecasters predicting it to be even colder this weekend and early next week, it wouldn't surprise me at all to see it frozen over by then. I shall take a picture in daylight tomorrow.

If anyone fancies seeing a lower league football match before the end of this month, tough titty, I think. Can really see almost all of January's card being wiped out in Divisions 2 & 3, beyond the odd game at Hampden.

thought it was clearer west coast, so since am idle with the weather would go into the town and do a bit of shopping.....signalling problems at partick, trains cancelled !

Which train was that? My train has to come through Partick to get home! Was it only stops at Partick cancelled, do you know?

I'm sure there were lumps of ice in the Tay when I was going over the Tay bridge on Tuesday. I was amazed that there was ice in it because I think it's salty up to about Perth.

Blizzard on it's way to Montrose tonight.

We never got any in Carnoustie but did Montrose? I'm going there, and everywhere else in Angus plus Inverbervie, tomorrow and I'd really rather not drive in the snow.

Fuckin' hell! I was amazed at a few lumps of ice but that's something else.

Yep, my train comes along that route as well, but the opposite direction. Thankfully, I left Springburn ok, but was stuck at Duke Street for 15 minutes for some reason that we were apparently not privvy to, and then when I got off at Bellgrove, it just seemed to sit there as well.

Christ almighty.

I was astounded to see the Clyde all but frozen over in Glasgow this morning, but that looks like something Shackleton sailed through on his way to Antartica.

I went into town this morning and the ice there was at least 3 to 4 inches thick on the pavements and roads,also very little gritting on the pavements and the roads in town. There was more grit on the bus than on the streets in Perth. :blink:

That girl has taken those pics from Newburgh but they don't really do it justice. It was completely frozen with snow lying on the ice on Wednesday morning.

Time for the daily snow! I was walking the dog earlier on, and saw this lot approaching, the clouds so heavy they appeared to be dragging themselves along the ground.8)

The salt content shouldn't affect the freezing too much, it's more the volume and flow. The Bering sea has ebbing and flowing ice tides dependant on wind direction and air pressure.

It really was an incredible sight at dawn on wednesday.

Salt stops working after about -5, that's the limit it reduces ice's melting point to. Which means treated roads are buggered.
