I tried to fuel up yesterday and couldnt get the petrol cap off as it had frozen - luckily I had enough to get home though.

    we had -10 yesterday morning, last night was a tropical 0c so maybe things may thaw slightly. Fresh 1cm of snow last night ontop of the slush, Rory been in the garage since Friday, the CRV has been the best thing in the snow.

    -10 c this morning & the car door is frozen up

    No snow, guess it's too cold for snow

    If it snows we are bang in trouble

    Maybe we should provide the snow with little snow jackets to keep 'em warm... but anyway I go off topic...

    Do the girls in Donny still wear nighties outside at 1:00am when it is -18'C?

    Lloyd owns a hair dryer :o?

    That would be like me owning a hair brush! ;D ;)


    Seriously though, loads of black ice on the roads of MK today.  I very nearly had a 'roundabout sign calamity' and was only doing about 10 mph.   :o :-\
