    Snowing here, but only lightly. Smiley faces drawn on all the cars.
    Going for a run, surely Yodel aren't going to turn up at this hour with my parcel?

    Morning Folks. Cold and wintry here. Won't see much as I'm off to bed. Tonight will be my last night shift at GMC coffee pot and hopefully for ever.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Oxoman - yeah

    Nice slightly snowy walk with puppy, now just keeping the fire going from last night before I start Dad taxi stuff

    Later is the rugby and some friends over

    Party for the out laws 60th wedding anniversary tonight. Will spend the day trying not to get involved with any arrangements.

    Morning. Dusting of snow here and more forecast for later, not sure what the day a head holds other than a trip to the chemists and watching the Milan Sanremo.

    a bit nippy, three hours of wind driven snow/sleet, but it wasn't cold enough to settle on the roads

    however bike iced over including the rear mech, gave up when shades also iced over every few minutes as it made seeing tricky, also discovered helmet vents were full of ice

    roll on summer

    I was wondering whether you would make it out.

    Snowing gently here as I sup coffee in a local caff while new tyres are fitted on the car - bloody Mots. Later is getting some more stuff to finish off the tiling in the kitchen.

    Afternoon folks,
    Traditional slow start has been had. Waiting in for a new mattress to be delivered now, cold out so I don’t really mind. Mrs is baking a cake. Later is out with friends.
    Rode to the pub the long way round last night as it was sunny, got rained on. Well done for getting out SG, are vents that are blocked with ice warmer as the wind doesn’t get through or colder because it’s ice? Bet you’re glad you’re back in the warmer temperate south Stevo.

    had a nice castelli balaclava on, the insulation probably kept the ice from melting and my head from freezing

    decided to clean a couple of chains ready for hols

    at some point a glass of wine, it'll be all downhill after that

    Just been for a walk and now in the local waiting for some pals to turn up :)

    afternoon, rather brisk out to say the least, short pedal after similar icing issues to Sungod, kept the aero cover on my Z1 so no ice filled vents, just an ice filled face.
    Now just loafing on the sofa with the dog watching the snow, drinking coffee an keeping the fire going, nice simple day.

    Still snowing like it means it here. Just been for a 6 mile walk with the missus, it got a bit Scott of the Antarctic at times, especially when the four horse women of the apocalypse can thundering out of mist.

    La Famiglia took the Hound out for a walk.

    It started sleeting and raining so we turned around and came home.

    I’m going to the gymnasium at 4, Bambini are off to the pool with TDV

    Yep, looks like I just missed it and the North East has had a decent dusting.

    Been for a run as still no bikes allowed, for a bit longer anyway. Dinner on the go and may crack the wine open early.

    Don't think I didn't notice that Webboo. You need to elaborate.

    Coming out of the woods into a blizzard, heard something behind and they were on us in a flash. I was too busy ushering the missus out of the way to do any assessments.
    I need to keep her safe at the moment me being one armed, she’s needed a bit more than usual.
