It's snowing!

Ayr doesn't get much snow at all, so there's great excitement when a little does lie. It's snowing right now .....

... and the river in front of the flat has ice on it again.

Because of the ice the heron hasn't been around for days as that's his usual low tide fishing spot. I haven't even seen the swans or mallards about nearly as much as usual.
This was the road to the campus on Wednesday:

We had lovely squeaky snow underfoot that day. Right down here by the shore it's not really lying though - it's pretty much melting when it hits the pavement, although it's lying a wee bit beside the river and on the sand which is covering the road (a result of the winter storms is that the road to the pier has a fair covering of sand now).
