the borrowing days have arrived
Thu, Mar 10, 2011
Folklore has it that the last three days of March are The Borrowing Days, when you can expect wild weather as winter borrows a few days from spring. They seem to have arrived early this year though. Yesterday was blizzards down to sea level and 3-4 inches of snow in the towns. Today I had to push the car door shut for Dawn otherwise it would have been ripped off its hinges just outside the house. It’s gusting 60 and anything not tied down is flying past the windows. There are some seriously big waves ploughing up the loch and there’s a foot of snow on the way. Just love this kind of weather!
