    So much for Spring!!

    Just thought I'd post this up saying as it's nearly the end of March, What happened to The start of Spring??
    Got in the car to come home from work tonight and seen this, that sucks. Can anyone beat that at the moment??

    Can't wait till Summer, maybe I can actually take off 1 or 2 off my jumpers. Lol.

    I know mate it is depressing. I love Spring, but this ain't spring, more like sprung. I hear on the BBC that the northerners are going to get snow over the next few days. Snow!!

    Yep, I thought we were over the winter when we had a nice weekend a few weeks ago.

    The cold does seem to have lingered around for longer than Id hoped - quick look at the 16 day forecast shows the temperatures may start picking up around the start of April.

    Cant wait to be able to work on the car in the late evenings in a t-shirt instead of 10 layers and a headtorch.

    It's killing me. Bought my A4 B7 convertible in November and I have not been able to have the roof down once yet!
    Follow my progress during the renovation of a 1930s bungalow. Will be kitted with multi-room audio and video throughout.

    Girl! I have seen so many people driving around with their roof down, even yesterday when I thought it was bloody cold.

    I had the roof down the week after we had the last bout of snow, but I did have a thick coat on though!

    There's a guy with an original TT Roadster who drives past my sons nursery at around the time I drop him off and the only time I have ever seen his roof up is when it's raining!!

    That's the thing though, when you have a soft top, you HAVE to have it down.
    that's the main reason for buying it, so even when its a bit chilly, you've got to have the top down.

    just think about those poor sods driving round in Morgans, they've got no chance,
    that's why you always see them with their WWII bomber jackets and their Biggles glasses, their either going to Asda or their about to bomb Nazi Germany!!
    Chocks away and get your top off!!

    Bring on the summer.

    Well, looks like wishing really doesn't work. I wished for some Sun and got Snow instead.

    Back again.
    Well it looks like we might actually be getting a Spring after all.
    Was pretty poor over the weekend, but first day back at work and surprise, the bloody sun comes out.
    Checked the forecast for the rest of the week, temps are good but looks like it will be peeing down.
    Took this pic today getting in the car at work. Probably be the best I'll get this year.
    I'm sure theres some better temps down South. Jammy buggers.
