Glorious sun out yesterday (if not a little chilly) so was rude not to head out.

 

Out again this morning to take the car down to PGM for a flat floor and geometry set up - an awful lot colder this morning at 7am though...

Yeah, it's been snowing here in Somerset today too Confused

I need to go into the office tomorrow (for only the third time in the last year), and I think I'll take my Fiesta ST. There's no sun forecast and I bet the roads will be gritted by the morning Ranting

I made the most of the two nice days last week with a run out locally after work. As the sun dropped I stopped to put on an extra layer for the last few miles home. It was only once I got out that I realised what a good photo opportunity  I'd set up without even trying. Was snowing when I passed the turn off for here in the tin top today though.

I managed a full 5 miles on Monday :). All local. Car hasn't been driven for what feels like months so wanted to be close enough incase I needed to push it back home ! Starting took a full day, since I had forgotten to keep an eye on the de-ionised water levels so had to put the trickle charger on for a full 24hrs after fixing that snafu Hoping for a longer drive this weekend :) FV
