Scotland covered in snow!

Scotland has been covered in snow for over a week - most in decades.  We've been lucky in our location.  Most of Scotland has been a disaster area.  Schools,  businesses closed, motorways closed, hundreds trapped in cars overnight, buses and trains not running, airports closed.  The military was called in to help clear the roads. 

Our area is supposed to warm up by Friday to about 9C, so the weather and roads shouldn't interfere with our trip to the airport hotel.  We fly to Michigan Sunday.   I'm very excited to meet my newest granddaughter, Allyson, and am very ready for a big hug from my angel, 5 year old Haylee.
