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).


The Picasso is the future Morris Minor.

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.

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...
