Snow on hills.....


...... but very little on Graemsay.....   Ward hill on Hoy under a blanket on snow. But Graemsay remains the green isle!  Although there was a sprinkling of snow up the West hill of Graemsay apparently (I didn't venture that far!).

The weather is to warm up to 7 degrees C tomorrow so even this small amount of snow will disappear. A white Christmas is therefore unlikely! But we are fortunate, many parts of the UK have torrential rain and flooding.  Very sad, particularly given the additional challenges of the pandemic.

Looking over to Orphir......

And this morning about 9am looking over to Stromness.... 

I wish everyone who celebrates Christmas a safe but merry one.  I'm having a quiet day tomorrow.  I'm missing the usual lead up to Christmas with the island Christmas party and the nativity and carol service but hey how.  I am safe, well, warm and have a fridge full of food so I am very lucky.


  1. Wishing you a very merry Xmas.
