Snow at 23,000 feet

Snow and ice brought much of UK traffic to a standstill today. I flew back home from Edinburgh late afternoon just as the worst of the weather started. Managed to press my trusty P900 up against the window to grab this shot just south of Edinburgh. Shortly after landing at Birmingham International Airport they temporarily closed the runway. I’ve flown a great many times but today was just a little bit scary. Complete white out until almost on the tarmac then ploughing though the slush on the runway it did cross my mind that we wouldn’t be able to stop! Anyway, after a 5 hour drive for the 15 or so miles between the airport and home I finally made it back in one piece. It’s below zero tonight so the roads will be just great tomorrow.
