    Had another layer down last night and the temp is -3.5.

    And good ole useless pathetic Surrey Council are at their best yet again.

    Took the wife to Gatwick as i do every morning, which is about a 10 min drive. Came through my village which has a bus route through it; no grit. Get onto the main road, the old London road, the A23; no grit. Get into Gatwick Airport, one of the UK's biggest airports; NO GRIT!!!!!!

    FFS! The normal 10 min drive took nearly half an hour as everyone was doing being 5 and 10mph as the roads were lethal. Just the smallest of squirts on the throttle and it was spin city!

    Surrey Council, you are a frickin shambles!

    Oh, and it's just started snowing again!


    Snowman, you got your ears on?

    Clear and bright this morning - the snow turned to rain last night and then froze solid so a bit treacherous out there. Decided last night not to risk it, had another large scotch and now working (skiving in VV's language - he's right!) from home

    Vehicle : Jaguar XF 3.0D V6

    I managed to get to work yesterday and today without major incident. OK I was a little delayed today (15minutes - but was a bit late getting up too !)

    My 70 mile commute was fine on the motorways, the only delay was actually getting to the motorway from my house, 4" of snow and some frost overnight made it a bit slippery, but you got to expect this and drive accordingly.

    So, why all the fuss?
