Sorry I can't contain myself.
It's SNOWING! see www.mattsavage.com/matt photo taken this morning on my way to work
AND when I got to work (all country lanes) I had to pull out a lorry that was trying to deliver to me!
There is a long narrow track going down to my place of work and as I got to work I saw the TNT 7.5 tonne lorry (fully loaded, I was his second drop!) trying to reverse out. No chance. I said I'd try and pull him back but I didn't think we had much of a chance. So I deflated my tyres as much as I could be bothered and hooked up to the back of his lorry. Engaged all the diff locks and off we went. It did it! I was amazed. We were going up hill, he was reversing and there was snow everywhere. But those six cylinders kept pumping away and we made it.
Ahhhh, anyway I must do some work now!
See ya

Matt,
See I told you so! we had some snow yesterday and a bit of compacted
ice and me being me thought I'd just scare a few poor souls on the
way.....
Well, I can't resist giving it a go...
mine is the same age and english specs as yours, and modded a bit - no
problem!
Enjoy! (I wish the snow would stay...)

Hi Matt,
Now that looks a bit more like it - we keep on getting minor
sprinkling, but not much more.
At least today it doesn't look like it is going to melt away.

Hi Renate,
I don't think I have any specific ones - I have a group shot, but yours
is difficult to make out.
BTW - any progress on the box of bits?
