Well tried my foam lance out this morning.... it didn't go a smoothly as I would have hoped, firstly the out side tap was frozen... 15 mins of hair dryer action sorted that out, plugged the hose pipe in... frozen solid... 20 mins later after coiling the pipe into a bath of red hot water we had flowing water. So off to the car pluggeg the power washer in... you guessed it... frozen solid!!!! another 15 mins with the hair dryer and we were finally ready of the snow!!! which was pretty good the local kids were amazed (or were trying to distract me before nicking the car) I rised it off and it looked pretty good.
Now to the problem after I had finished I was left with a load of frozen foam, a foot path Torvill and Dean could have used and a road the police could use for skid pan training. so It was off to B&Q for some rock salt and an ear bashing of the Mrs for being "like a kid at Christmas".
