It’s March, isn’t it?

I thought we were still in March when I woke this morning: the third month of the year, the end of winter and the beginning of spring, a cool month in this part of Scotland.

By 11am I was having second thoughts, perhaps we were really in May or even June as the sun shone and the temperature passed through 18ºC.

At 2pm, I was convinced we were firmly in July as the temperature peaked at 22ºC and the boys filled a couple of a plastic tubs with water before splashing about.

According to the BBC, Fyvie Castle, in Aberdeenshire, recorded a temperature of 22.8C shortly after 15:30, edging past the previous high of 22.2C. I can well believe it.

It’s downright peculiar to experience summer sunshine and summer temperatures at the end of March. After all, this is what we usually experience at this time of year…

Yes, that was 23 March, 2008 and that wasn’t atypical. Today was.

  1. Sounds like you are enjoying a good & early warm season Stoney; the boys certainly are having a wonderful wet time in the photo.

  2. Saw 22C on a TV weather forecast for Aberdeen and thought of you and all the snow you had the last couple of winters. What a difference!!
