Oh, the weather...

outside is frightful... Let it snow! Let it snow! -Sammy Cahn & Jule Styne

Despite Phil declaring spring is on its way, I doubt few in the Northern Hemisphere believed him this week. After the warmest January in over 90 years, the United Kingdom was treated to arctic temperatures the past few days. And, for the lucky, up to 4 inches of snow overnight. Edinburgh wasn't blessed with more than a skiff, but it made a crisp (25F) sunrise well worth pausing to admire.

I had hoped to provide a wonderful panorama from 'my' back garden but it seems assembling these large files takes a bit more skill than this novice digital photographer has. Heck, I almost printed the lot, assembled them on the desk, and rescanned the result! Oh, its days like today when I miss 35mm film.

Hopefully a friend or two will come to the rescue over the next few days... but, until then here is a taste of what's to come:

I'm working on an asssembly of the entire Arthur's Seat/Salisbury Craig panorama with snow... hopefully for mid-week. Its required some new software and learning it, which for obvious reasons isn't job one at the moment; understanding microarray outputs is. =)
