Strong winds and No visibility

No picture today as we couldn't see anything. 
Gusts of 110mph  on Cairngorm summit. !
Most of the overnight snow seemed to have accumulated lower down the hill at around 900m but some wet new stuff fringes the corrie rim and will be present in the top of gullies. I expected to see avalanche debris in the deposition zones but I couldn't see very far . 
I would be very surprised if there has not been avalanche activity on North aspects elsewhere.
To get colder overnight with more snow Friday evening.
