    Please tell the stupid driver in front of me the temperature!! They now know that if it's -6 outside, and you are driving on a motorway, it doesn't matter if your windscreen washers work, don't use them, as -6 plus 60mph windchill will defeat your 'works to -9' washer fluid!

    And, it also completely buggers up the person behind you (me in this case)!!

    I did that (at low speed) yesterday around the corner from the house. Oh great I though. My washer fluid is defrosted (it's almost neat as well!), jet onto window. Wait 2 seconds. Pull over and re-scrape window.

    Grey skies in Kensington. Not warm (but not ridiculously cold). Still odd patches of ice and snow (particularly where it's been heaped up when pavements were cleared)

    Don't know what all the fuss is about :-)
