Hi all. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. It is currently snowing in West Dorset/East Devon, and temperatures here have struggled to get above freezing all week. If you are venturing this way over the weekend, bring your sledge instead of your boat!

Was planning on Loch Lomond whilst up to see the folks at Easter but I can't really justify a 500 mile round trip with the weather as it is. Massively pissed off, i've got a new prop to play with.
