When the Landy gets stuck I will organise tro the owners club, a L200 to get you out.
You do have an active immagination though
last Sat you were telling us it was minus 8
we were up north Lisburn/Belfast it was only -3 up there a few hundred miles north of Swansea

and now the West of Ireland gets less battered by the Atlantic wind than Swansea , Funnel effect, eh are we not in the way first?????

I can assure you it WAS -8C - I know because I was playing with my really cool infra red hand held thermometer!!! That was the temp of my car roof - the ground was only -3C because it was still holding some heat from the sun!!!

If you look at a GLOBE rather than a map you will see that the British Isles are at a bit of an angle - the prevailing wind is MAINLY SW so it hits Cork/Kerry and Cornwall first - think of them as the rim of the funnel - the wind is then squeezed down until it hits the SW Wales coast - hence the funnelling.

There is not much in it though - W Ireland still gets one hell of a battering.
