Snow day

The weather which has been hammering the north of Scotland came down on Edinburgh today. First thing in the morning it was clear, blue winter skies and sun with the chilly wind straight from the Arctic Circle coming right up the Forth estuary. Then suddenly the sky turned slate and small flakes fluttered gently down; minutes later and it was a heavy blizzard. Alas much of it was gone by the time I finished work but I did manage to snap a few pictures.
