Storm Caroline turned out not to be too bad for us, or the rest of Mull, as far as I can tell. I know we have had worse storms since we moved here. The storm itself was not very eventful but the resulting snow and cold air that was bought in from the Arctic was beautiful. Very cold and white. The snow etches the mountains and landscape in such a vivid way that is invisible when not there. It allows the ridges and the peaks to stand out and give the island an even richer character.
