    Whether it is true or false, I am quite happy to be doing jury duty today rather than Bikeability today in Whetstone. Today does not look like a pleasant day to be hanging around on street corners with 9 & 10 year olds.

    I know its usual form to go off topic asap but the question isnt do you like snow, it's has it snowed yet?

    My cousin in Canada posted a picture of the weather forecast there, -31'C. Brrrrr.
  • davieseedaviesee Posts: 6,386
    I thought the whole point of this thread was the current weather, where you are.

    Get with the programme.

    Indeed, I'm just really glad it's not -31. I'm trying to cheer people up by telling them it could be a fookin' site worse than it is.
