Today, the weather in the central belt of Scotland ( between Glasgow and Edinburgh) deteriorated significantly due  to a’dump’ of about 10cm of snow in the matter of few hours.This resulted in further transport chaos with airports closed, road and rail travel severely affected and many schools forced to shut early.

The snow was so heavy that there was little point in trying to get out by car so I went for a walk (with my camera|) in the neighbourhood to record this very unusual event. Traffic was backed up everywhere with cars being unable to traverse even modest inclines without human muscle power. Only 4 X 4 vehicles were getting around.

Here is my portfolio of images:

This young guy on the sledge had the right idea! Definitely the best way to get around.
