...guys?

You're not alone, we had another 5" of snow last night. We actually got lucky, they were predicting a Blizzard and 24-36 inches but it didn't materialize here.


Still, I'm getting very tired of looking at the RT sitting in the garage. Weird winter, we haven't had very much snow but the little bits we are getting have them salting like crazy men! Not much rain in between to ever get the roads cleaned off yet. Ah well....maybe next week.


I guess I'll go back in the garage and make some more engine noises now...

Just tried to bring back 5kg jar of sunshine from Ayres Rock (43c) but suitcase was too heavy, just landed today at Heathrow after 23hrs flying temperature 2c bloody cold. Eastern Australia bloody great, Western Australia is next once I have the money lol
