Jack Frost

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?

The following is one of the comments you "accidentally" deleted. Alas, I did not receive a copy of what Lee left before, which is probably also your fault.

I suppose it was just a matter of time before you sucked all of the warmth out of the area. Would you consider coming over here for a visit after we have a few too many days of over 100(F) next summer? Of course, we wouldn't want you to stick around.
