Gawd. The snow Forecast is basically Wales, then a gap, then the Midlands. Tomorrow is going to be fun! Do we have a Plan B if the auctions decides 'sod this?'

I'm bringing extra pants. Just in case I can't get back home again. This is deliciously stupid.

 

That's the setting out for a drive in OMG SNO KAOS, not packing extra pants.

I should be passing Preston about 2-3pm

And going as far as Cannock

Do ye fancy meeting up somewhere to pick up a fairing?

And possibly a bottle of Rum ( might just have to message Pillock about that one)

 

I can either meet up at the M6 Charnock Richard Services or Tickled Trout just off the M6 Junction 30 ( Preston).

Charnock Richard would work best for me:)

Pm me your mob number chief and I'll pass on mine!

Earlier this week I scoffed at how Nottingham never gets snow and is always in  the hole of some sort of weird doughnut in the Midlands.

 

Latest forecast however, suggests I may need to eat my hat doughnut (shaded bits = snow)

This may also ruin any chance I had of buying a requisite old-skool car and rocking up in a new steed to garner approval from Cannock attendees

 

Oh well, smokey and fucked Rover 75 for £100 from Cannock it is then....

If the auction's called off due to snow you'll just have to spend the day doing donuts in the car park in Heidel_Kakao's Cedric.

Sitrep from your Cannock correspondent: I've seen more snow on Richard Bacon's coffee table.

 

Allegedly.

Shrewsbury was awful! Main road closed on the approach, and absolute bedlam in Shrewsbury itself. All because people can't drive.

Cannock achieved. It's fine here. At the moment...
