“Ah-hem,” says reader Caroline Snyder. “Isn’t that how glaciers begin?”
6 Oct 11 – “Cairgorm in the Highlands was the first place in the UK to experience the chill of winter as the ski slopes on the Scottish resort experienced the first dump of snow,” says this article on dailymail.com.
The Mountaineering Council of Scotland said the snow fell where snow patches from last winter – one of Scotland’s hardest winters on record – had survived through the summer months.
Forecasters are predicting frost across England at the weekend.
