The recent winter weather has continued. It's been even colder; reaching minus 20 Celcius on one night, and whenever the teperature has warmed to around freezing there has been more snow; which has in turn frozen. The stuff on the ground is very hard.
There's an impressive growth of icicles on all the houses. In these conditions, simple chores can be a bit of a struggle. Credit to Aberdeenshire Council, who are keeping all the main routes clear so far.
