No snow here in this part of Catalunya, but been very cold for the last two weeks or so, frost every night bar last night. roads salted so no bike riding until thats all gone.
Very cloudy today, no sun at all, so generator on to top up my batteries-- I'm on solar electricity, no sun means charging batteries for using electricity from the inverter. 240volts max 2.8 kws.

We had 3 or 4 inches here in mid-Essex yesterday (Sunday). Went out on my V50 to meet up with some chums for a late lunch at a pub out in the sticks and it was quite tricky going. Hot grips.

A1 will be gritted but the 7 miles over the moors to it will be definitely not b

and it definitely wasn't, had quite a job keeping the cars nose pointing in the right direction, once on the A1 we were fine except for the screen washer which had frozen and never thawed out at all there and back so several stops to clean the screen, the missus would insist I had let the thing run dry, not so I had topped it up just last week, and here the lesson to be learned , never again use ready mixed screen wash !!! it's obviously not up to winter work

So how about "had a job getting the car to give a straight delivery, tracks and the snow showed other drivers throwing googlies"

I think they did understand; it's just references to screenwash freezing and cars not going in a straight line must be foreign to them.

It's been white here on Sunday, but now it's just shitty wet and foggy. But other parts of Switzerland get a good load of white material...

I tend to think of Switzerland as being permanently white.

My only visit to England / Scotland was when I was about 7 years old... I remember it being windy but beautiful.
Visiting the Isles again (on my A10 of course) is one project for the future (if my family allows it)

It's not always foggy and rainy in Scotland. Today it was foggy and snowy.
