Empty Princes Street
Christmas shopping today was an interesting experience in a snowstorm. The shops were almost deserted, the city's buses stopped running and schools closed again. In some cases the buses stopped before a school closed, which for those pupils with cross-town journeys meant either a very long walk in the snow or an overnight stay at a friend's house.
Temperatures are supposed to rise to 6 degrees at the end of the week. I daresay we'll be wading through one gigantic puddle.
