    Our 40% chance of snow later in the week has now been downgraded to 0% chance.

    Which means we should almost certainly get some.

    Me too! As I worked....................in 2009. I think it was a Tuesday.

    I would have liked to get out on the Fireblade as it is now serviced, road legal and ready to go (although I'm still too fat for my leather pants). But the garden thermometer keeps saying three degrees every time I check And I'm not riding in those temperatures, I'm past all that nonsense.
    Are those the ones you showed me with fart-gas/stool disposal flaps on the arse cheeks? Novel idea, that. If you cut back on the Chinese takeaways, it might help your fat arse fit into them

    But I remember all too well the snot-fest of riding motorbikes in freezing cold weather! I think I still have the rather gluey remnants of some stuck to an old helmet I sometimes polish.

    Snow here, lots of it. Piling up in the garden, and then melting again. Then more, then melt.

    Weird weather indeed!

    Sure enough it's now snowing. Although very lightly.
