Apr 28th, 2015
It needs to be seen to be believed, but on 28th April we are back to winter here in Lochgoilhead.
On Sunday R and I had yet another go at Beinn Bheula only to give up before really getting on to the mountain proper because the weather had turned into a foul combination of rain, sleet and hail (I wonder if the Eskimos have a word for this particular variant of nasty?).
Yesterday it was quiet cold with a further scattering of snow on the mountains, and then this morning the hills are white again – my estimate would be snow above about 100m (although it must be pretty localized because the traffic cameras on the Rest are showing the road clear).
Interestingly – although the weather is a lot colder than last year – when I compare the photos from then with now, the vegetation does not seem to be that far behind where it was at this time last April
