you should take some pics of the snow cos we havent seen any yet and it might be the only snow we see
No prob down to the fact that some of the gritters aren't fitted with a plough and are not too good offroad!!!

In some places we were the ONLY vehicle out - although I did give a tow to some poor buggers in a BT van - the things they will do for overtime!!!

Only 5cm in swansea itself but the Black Mountains were very impressive - not much in Brecon though!!!

Roads are pretty clear in Swansea now - but I may venture out later into the Black Mountains again.

Was pretty pointless taking photos last night - all you get is a load of white dots from the flash. Couldn't use my 4 spotlights on the roof either - just threw the light straight back!!!

Conditions really were bad last night - Britain is described as having an Artic climate as opposed to Alpine - it was definitely the case - windchill was horrendous.

Have you got any pictures of your 110, because I am a bit of a Landy fan -just waiting until Im old enough to get classic car insurance, fancy a 90 SWB.

Regards

Alex

I thought the age of the vehicle was what mattered - not the driver?

Try Firebond - they are great!!! Vehicle must be 10 years old - I now pay 140 fully comp compared to 600 which was my cheapest normal quote. Only thing is it must be a 2nd vehicle and you are not covered to drive anything else.
