I was back up to Edinburgh after the Christmas break. Flight up was in the clear sunshine; view from the window was poor though because of the de-icer which ran off the fuselage and froze over the window. Saw enough see there was a small covering of snow over the Pennines, Lake District and any high hill. It was cold in Edinburgh, -6 Celsius.
The City was starting its New Year celebrations; the whole place was shaken with large explosions. Not sure what was happening as I was in the middle of my Curry. There were more rides in the gardens, and the place was full of people. Lots of barricades were going up for the Royal Bank Street Party in Princes Street.
