AND FINALLY… now for the very green weather all over Scotland

cloudless ScotlandJust looks like a smattering of snow on the Cairngorm mountain tops with a looming winter snow-storm coming in from Greenland, doesn’t it?

But it’s not. It is in fact whisps of cloud over an otherwise cloud-less sky over a very sunny Scotland.

It’s so rare, in fact, that this photo was taken by US astronaut Jeff Williams as he whizzed by in the International Space Station on one of the warmest and sunniest days in Scotland as temperatures reached up to 25C down on the ground.

Indeed, solar power is predicted to have such a bright future in the emerging Scottish Energy Strategy, that Scottish government civil servants have been told to provide free sun-screen lotion to every household when the strategy is published.
