    -4.5 was the lowest it dropped on the way to work yesterday but didn't seem to get over -1 the entire day. Was quite warm when I left this morning, only -2!

    As you are all sat nice and warm in your cars going to or coming back from work, spare a thought for me. I'm still cycling, 20 miles each way, which is taking me about 1hr 15 in this weather. So far this week I've had -6, -5 and -4 degrees on 3 of the 4 mornings. Oh, and freezing fog on Tuesday night on the way back. It's not quite far enough for my water bottle to freeze solid, but it comes pretty close...:cold:
