    t'was between +1 and -3.5 on the drive in for me this morning, and it's showing -1.0 in my Astra on the carpark now.

    I thought I'd freeze to the wheel. Forgotten where my studded driving gloves are!

    Pretty though. Swine to breathe in if you're asthmatic!

    Ah, don't be so soft. It's not that cold.
    Remember, you can always wrap up more to get warmer, but when you are boiling hot and butt naked there isn't much you can do to get cooler.
    It was really iced up and frosty this morning, I wonder if we'll see some snow soon?

    Kinky, shouldn't you be concentrating on driving though?

    It was snowing in Middlesbrough yesterday morning at about 5:30 and my car was iced up this morning. Loving the Mondeo's Quick Clear button, de-iced everything in under a minute

    We're at a small school in the Yorkshire Dales, so I'm hoping for loads of snow this winter, so are the kids and most of the staff. We want some time off.

    Re: Cold, so very cold....

    Last year in Oldham we had one day of real heavy snow, pupils and staff made their way in and life went on.

    The LEA in their wisdom decided that all schools were to be closed the next day for pupils.

    When i got up in the moring all the snow had melted, plus side, no kids

    You want to try living down here - slightest hint of white and everything grinds to a standstill...

    Hmm this time of year, getting dragged halfway across the school to show people how to plug in their printers does have slightly less comedy value. I can fell tasks which can't be done via VNC being 'reprioritised'.
