Feckin' Weather


#681

Ours is Tuesday. It should have thawed by then :pray:


#682

Bin collection was cancelled here today.

Canadian trains seem to be immune to snow on the tracks

After struggling up to Derby yesterday to find no-one local had bothered, I’ve made the executive decision to stay home and play records all day instead.


#685

How long was that! It took over 2 minutes to clear the crossing. Snow plough was ace.

We need entrepreneurs like this to keep the country moving:

#690

#691

Pah! Well in Canadia they obviously get the “right” sort of snow! :roll_eyes:


#692

Claire stated, with her customary authority, that there was no way that it was frozen because she’d tried to fix it by pouring hot water down the plughole…

I pointed out to her the 18" of external drainpipe the led to the stack and asked if she thought the hot water would have dissolved the ice in that…

“It’s not frozen,” she maintained, “you’ve done ‘something’ to it.” Sigh.

So I’ve just been up a ladder with her hairdryer and guess what…:roll_eyes:


#693

You must have the patience of a saint! Reading that just makes me realise how lucky I am.


#694

She’s alright really, apart from the usual alpha female traits. She mostly puts up with my shit, so she can’t be too bad.


#695

Praise indeed


#696

Some great snow drifts on the A43 this morning, 5ft high in places by side of road.
