    Mine was showing -9 this morning and then as I got going -7. Thats my Vec-B. Driving from outskirts of West Brom towards Brum City Centre! I have to park my car about 10 mins walk away when at work, so went back to the car at lunchtime to get some things out and the road was----> well lets just say the phrase "skating on ice" springs to mind.

    Pure sheet ice!!


    Bye bye Vec B

    Sam's Astra showed -6 this morning when I took her to work... Can't be coincidence, surely?

    I think they're fairly accurate.
    I have a weather station with a sensor on the patio, which read -7.8 this morning. When I got in the Siggy, it read -9, and the Astra showed -8.5 when I got it out of the garage.
    It's ****** cold, whatever the gague reads. I'm now putting on so many layers when I go out with the dog (lined Craghopper trousers, thermal socks, wellies, shirt, fleece and 3-season jacket with zip-in fleece, plus Thinsulate gloves and hat) that she brings one of her toys into the hall to play with while she's waiting for me to get ready.
    She's from Tibet, so she just wears the same fur coat as always!
