At just before 12 noon on the 12th day of the 12th month of the 2012th year of our Lord I took this picture of our frozen landmass. The sun was at its zenith and having had my hair cut shortly before I can tell you the suns batteries had run out! The novelty of 12 noon on 12/12/12 did not occur to me at the time. I was merely attempting to record the front covered country around us.
This sight as I woke explained why the air had been so cold during the night. This sort of thing is fine up north, Inverness played Ross County where the temperature was -5 at 7:45 kick off last night, these folks expect such horrors, I don't. However there is something fabulous about a frost bitten land when the sun shines upon it. Another 24 hours and all this will turn to our more usual rain. Oh joy!
Oh Spring, wherefore art thou pal?
