Winter 2010-2011

Between 26th December 2009 and into the early new year to 2nd January 2010 there were significant falls of snow – at least for this part of southern Scotland.

A series of very low night-time temperatures followed, alternating with slightly milder weather during daylight hours.

Large icicles proliferated on houses with the repeated melting and freezing, and the main A702 road between Biggar and Edinburgh running through West Linton was closed for almost 24 hours.

Brown bears aren’t indiginous to this part of the world but a bit of PhotoShop fun seemed quite appropriate at the time.
