Yes Paul. Even my Land Rover at 70mph this morning wasn't too noisy (or I'm going deaf)

Iím just sat in the lounge watching the tumbleweed... Surprised

Itís definitely been much quieter since the start of the new year. According to the weather, weíre due another arctic blast this week. Thatíll bring out us hardy Landy owners! Very Happy

Rich, compared with 55 years ago it'll be a heatwave.

Does it count if you don't have one? What if I go out and build a snow man? Does that count?

Oh, wait! It only rains in the soggy south west. Best get my wellies on Rolling Eyes

Been out in it today round Avon and North East Somerset- at some points I could have done with a canoe! There's more to come, apparently.

Been raining all day in my corner of Hampshire. Dogs and I got soaked walking to and from our local.
Towing a boat on Wednesday but if it keeps on raining I reckon I could sail it to its destination.

Looks like the tumbleweed will be floating past here too over the next few days, judging by the weather forecast... Surprised

About 11.30 this morning the wind dropped suddenly and down it came while I was walking the dogs and 100 yards ot so from my Land Rover and got soaked. Despite the strong winds I delivered the boat safely to its destination.
