Last week, on the day Alien Wally returned to work, he and Mags opened the flat door to let him and his bike out, only to be greeted by strange things falling from the sky. It took a second or two for it to sink in that they were witnessing snow. Actual snow! From the sky! Out they went, Mags still in dressing gown and slippers, and kind of danced around in it. It was like being inside a giant snow-globe!

The flurries came and went during the day. By mid-afternoon there was a good sprinkling of snow on the ground at the Wally Abode, and even more on Calton Hill and Arthur’s Seat. The former had all melted away by the end of the day, but the latter survived into the next.
