Nairn today - looking out at a bleak scene, luckily I'm cosily inside

The view from my apartment around lunch-time today. The soundtrack in the background by the way is the BBC Scotland lunch-time news on BBC1.

Looking out to sea through the blizzard - it looks bleak and wild

Panning across from the harbour and the cricket pitch with the A96 and Marine Road just visible in the gloom

Panning back from Marine Road to the harbour and sea

- definitely a day when it is much better to be indoors if you possibly can. The cricket pitch looks just like an ice-rink at present and the side-streets looks pretty treacherous, too. Brrrrrr!

  1. At least the gritters are out but they are in a losing battle.

    Nearly had my car which is off the road slid into by a gritter lorry. Still at least they must have reported this as the council have had a digger come along to dig the road out. The scary thing is im in Inverness.
