Pathetic UK cold weather excuses?

Post by Ewazix » Sun Mar 04, 2018 3:50 pm

and continuing in the crazy snow theme... there are reports that people in Somerset are trying to sell bread and milk on facebook due to shortages in the shops, with ad's priced at £100 for a loaf to, believe it or not £5k :w00t:

Well, despite the ‘beast from the east’, I spent a lovely cold Saturday morning driving around North Wales...in a Z4...with summer tyres on :o

Did take my still-unused sno-socks with me though...just in case :thumbsup:
I took a shovel with me today and I needed it. :wink:
My mate is just south of Launceston...about 2 miles away from the nearest A road...and he's stuck at home as he can't get any of his cars up the 20º drive :rofl:

Even if he could, there's no way he'd be able to get to a cleared/gritter road anyway - as all of his cars are on summer tyres.
Now over 160,000 miles...Individual Ruby Black, Individual extended champagne leather, plus many options
