A little bit of snow in south Funen, Denmark - but otherwise just wet, dirty and miserable weather, so nearly time to go to job at sea again ( as if that’s any better )  *conf*

I bought a set of snow tyres for my car 4 years ago and, here in Kent, it hasn't snowed since......!
my boss bought a set for his mondeo  to go on a ski holiday to the italian alps  drove all the way there and back then couldn't get up his drive in north yorkshire for snow

      Thanks you guys In the U K for taking the snow that we usually get here in Seattle Washington U S of A.  Normally by now we have between 2 to 3 inches of the crap, it sure is pretty for picture taking,
   However the Idiot drivers do not know how to drive in it.  I really love the guy that makes a run for the hill to make it to the top, then decides to slow down and stop in the middle of the hill, and I am right behind him the A-hole ! ! 

       "So thanks again you fellas who never get snow for taking ours "

Picked the wrong day to organise taking my aged folding caravan back to its makers in North Norfolk from Dover for a refurb.

Had Xmas lunch booked and paid for on the North Norfolk Light Railway.

Left early due to the forecast and got as far as Stanstead on the M11 with the traction control light flashing too much and pulled into the services to wait three hours for the snow to ease, missed my lunch!

1961 A10SR, spent a fortune at SRM
1961 A7SS, finally the right green
2011 New addition 1937 Empire Star, twin port, high pipes. Turned out to be the most unreliable bike I have handled.
2017 finally found the liner/barrel were flexing and causing all the overheating/nipping up. Early B33 barrel fitted and it's reliable at last!

My son, his wife and two kids drove home from his sisters in London to Warwick on Sunday.That's about 100 miles. The journey normally takes two and half hours but this time it took five hours! They turned off for a break at Oxford motorway services but it took two hours to get into a parking bay!
