A little bit of exitement!

Did You Know? Glasgow’s Coat of Arms

Did You Know? Glasgow’s Coat of Arms

Glasgow, like many cities, owes its existence to the river which flows through it and the fact that in historical times it was a convenient crossing point of that river. In those days the Clyde was not a deep navigable river up to Glasgow, but was the […]

Small Stream Adventure

So Im gagging to get out and do some river fishing. Today I talked my future mother in law in to stopping so I could have a gander at a tributory. It looked nice….and more to the point it looked not muddy…like the kellie just now.. It still looked kinda peaty but ok for the […]

Crash, bang, boom…Kapow!!

Someone asked me the other day what was happening with my weather blog as that is all I talk about these days. Here is a view from my front window (please add thunder sound effects)

More rain!

More rain!
