WHO's sick of Winter!!!!!

I was going to de-winterise my rib today. You know fill with fuel,put the battery in,change the fuel separator,test the engine on both tanks and give it a little TLC.
However it's blowing a gale,only 4 degrees and I am feeling lousy.
Next weekend is now looking just as cold!!!!!

To be honest, I'm not fussed about the temperature as it's not raining!

Me!! I'm sick of winter too, I don't mind the wind, but these N and E winds just spoil the fun for me, wrapping up like an eskimo is to restrictive, bring on the S and Westerlies least they bring warm air with em.

It was freezing on the Thames yesterday for the Boat Race ...... https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...1033562&type=1

I ended up with my hands in the telltale to warm them up at one stage!

Roll on shorts and t shirt weather is what I say!!!
