Wintry Dennis

16th February 2020

(Above) Storm Dennis put paid to any aspirations on high ground today-  I took myself off to Glenshirra, at the Eastern end of the Creag Meagaidh range to hide.

(Above) Some low level terrain features today at around 650m, provided shelter for a poke at the snow.

(Above) Graupel (up to 2mm) noted amongst the new precip particles.

(Above) ….. and the ‘Apprentice’ noted a few snowballs too!

(Above) Some brighter periods in the mix during the day also –  further snow showers and very windy conditions still to come overnight, before ‘Dennis’ heads off on his merry way….

    Here’s a question for the Apprentice. What do you do about the furry ice balls? I took my year old pup out for his first blast of snow last week and he ended up twice his normal size with snow. Any top tips?
