    @amir - I had several punishment passes as I took primary on the way down Gilmerton Road this morning.

    The bike lanes were bright white. It shouldn't be surprising that I'm not cycling in them. Not that punishment passes would be acceptable if the bike lanes weren't frozen, of course.

    Shameless selfishness @frenchy. And they will have saved no time at all.

    One of them was a school minibus. With oncoming traffic. I'm angry.

    Wrapped up warm and quite enjoyed the brisk air. Stopped in Lidl (newly built, stainless steel wheel-benders) on my way home for vegetables and was immediately sweating like I was in a sauna.

    @frenchy, that sounds very bad. Schools on holiday but play schemes for disabled children still running. So that is worse in my book.

    To clarify, the minibus only had the driver inside at the time, I was mainly commenting on the size of the vehicle.

    But it is terrifying that such poor driving is on show from a school bus driver.

    @IWRATS The new Niddrie LIDL on the opposite side of the road? If so, there are Sheffields.

    Suggest Lidl stock some birch switches and a nice snowdrift to roll in?

    Snowing heavily in S Edinburgh now.

    Very wet, sleety, cold looking snow. Just as I have to leave for work.

    Excellent detective work. Where dem Sheffields?

    @gembo, @unhurt

    IKEA plywood flat-pack vegetables a good idea. Nicer to eat than Brüssels Sprøåðs.

    It's that word "could" again -

    "

    Met Office forecasters say an atmospheric event is taking place known as a Sudden Stratospheric Warming, which could mean it will stay cold in the weeks ahead.

    A little ice on North Meadow Walk and the canal towpath this morning, but fairly easily avoidable. Light snow now falling at Heriot-Watt.

    Heavier snow now falling. Rain forecasted for the rest of the day. I hope that it doesn't just snow instead of rain.

    Strong winds - allegedly from south though they felt more like easterly in coldness on NMW. Glad I was keeping a low profile.

    Aye that's my trip to the allotment postponed. Really strong gusts, and snow. Not much fun on a sit-up-and-beg.

    "Time to go outside and find some lunch I think."

    You've got me worried you're about to go hunting for some wildlife to eat. What does kingfisher taste like?
