Windslab forming in Edinburgh, 1st December 2010.

After 6 days of snow in the Scottish capital and no real freeze thaw cycle, it became apparent the dangerous windslab was forming (err, on the hedge). As this was becoming a hazard when wading through the deep, unconsolidated snow to dig out the car (again), I decided the best thing to do was to trigger several releases, mostly onto myself!
Sadly, I have been unable to get anywhere near a hill since all this started and yet conditions in the west of Scotland, especially Glencoe and Locahber seem to be fantastic! The Northern Cairngorm SAIS blog did report big avalanches though in the
Coire an t'Sneachda, so maybe best to avoid for a while.
