It's official - 2009/10 was the coldest winter in Scotland for nearly 50 years. Gripped by snow for days on end it's a wonder that public transport survived at all. Motorists were told to be prepared at all times and carry a shovel and a flask in their cars. However this was not an option for intending bus passengers when a blizzard appeared from nowhere. Perhaps that was the lasting memory of this winter - incessant sudden snow storms. One such occurred in Edinburgh on the first full shopping day after Christmas. One minute everyone was walking around as normal, the next people were slipping and sliding on snowy pavements. Bus services battled on through the blizzard. Even the demand for open top tours remained undiminished during the peak of the storm. After an hour of chaos the sky stopped dumping, but nobody could be quite sure when it was going to return. It's no joke.
