Probably homesick ex-pats?

We do not in fact have much snow at all in Orkney - about one inch fell this morning, about tripling the total in this cold spell. It does cause an awful lot of disruption though as the winds can carry it for hundreds of yards as the open landscape contains little to detain it. This means very little snow can rapidly give very hazardous roads, and Orcadians are rightly wary and cautious. Even in the time I have been here I can recall roads being closed by blowing of already fallen snow. It certainly knocks a few social events on the head.

Well Arnish, as one of your regulars I can quite simply explain this. There are two choices, 1) the view from the verhanda onto the M74 extension works, (even though these have not actually been officially passed by the Parli)....or your webcam, Campbeltown, Orkney, Shetland, in fact anywhere that I would rather be than my beloved home town. Just because I love it doesnt mean we have to be joined at the hip for ever. I would like to think there will be time off for good behaviour.
