Latitude 51N

Another bitterly cold day, with temperatures in parts of Britain dropping down to -17C (0.86F) overnight. So no, didn't go sailing or kayaking over the weekend.

Its worth remembering that we're actually at a higher latitude than most of Newfoundland, and its only the Gulf Stream that keeps our waters free of icebergs.

Time to wrap up warm and cook up something warming like a cassoulet.

Not wishing to brag (but going on to do exactly that) us soft south coast types went rowing twice.

There's no such thing as bad weather, only being in the wrong place. I bet the weather is fine in St. Lucia.

Don't say we never send you anything.

Chris: brag away, what else is frostbiting for than brag rights.

Tillerman: true in theory, but in practice.....?

O'Docker: Don't worry, I won't ;)
