It's true... Scotland is beautiful, I went to the Isle Of Mull 2 summers ago and loved it. Truely great, I'd rather visit Scotland than going to Magaluf or some dodgey place for a holiday, and I'll see less English people if I go to Scotland too!
Well, if it rains, buses and trains can still run. I can still commute to work on my bike and your average Joe can still drive to work.
If it snows, I can no longer ride to work, the average Joe can't drive (or would have to extremely slowly + traffic etc) to work, trains are delayed, or even worse cancelled, and buses run at different times because of the snow and the traffic.
Been snowing great here though the sun is now out and its melting... but the temp is dropping again -5 its meant to go to it seems every morning there's an inch more :P
Went a drive up to rothes and aberlour (small villages around 12miles into the grampian mountains) and bt god is it bad, theres trees wit hnearly 5" of snow on them half of them have bent over under the weight and so the tree boys have cut like half the trees down part of the way up the road it was blocked by a huge tree going straight across the road xD. At the sides of the roads and in the villages there is like 2 1/2 feet of snow . We got some pics too ill get them later when i get a hold of my camera.
