I'm off the Argyll in the morning to say hello to me 'baby' and take the wraps of her to start the process of getting her ready... oh and BTW I am also going to open up the caravan. One good forecast no wind so 'wind-chill' will be low!!!!!

Sorry to set this one off folks. Loved the image from Spartacus - it just about sums up the situation! My toys are still in hibernation as well, so it's a problem for all of us. The attached image is Lyme Regis beach on Sunday, and the same weekend last year!

Boat is currently under 6/8 foot of snow.
Last 4 day the road to Red Bay was blocked with snow - drifting up to 12 feet.

I am hoping for Donegal and hoping that XCWeather is wrong for once and that a Force 4/5 wind is not blowing (in the Atlantic!! - not happy ) AND that the temp is above the predicted high of 7C on Sunday with a 4C and 25mph wind on Monday !!!!



Looks like I will be working in the shed fitting the new bilge pump and not getting her out of it all weekend

Actually, it's very nice here Tony. Dry and clear - even sunny - temp in the high singles.

I only put the snow on me duck to fit in with the other misery guts on here...
