Snow in Oban after the storm.

Yesterday I failed to reach Fort William due to the storm and consequently didn't get to work on the hill. The desk beckoned and the hatches were battened down which was very sensible, as the winds were coming through at 144 mph on West Coast hills. I woke this morning to fresh snow fall in the garden and a picture post card view of Ben Cruachan. Happy days. I start Hebridean Pursuits winter skills courses off on Monday so any fresh on an old base will gratefully received. Strangely when the weather worsens I get an erge to run, but leaving the shoes outside is never a good idea. Cold feet it is then!
