I saw a nice looking maroon XM in the Woking area today, about 14:00. I need to check my dash cam for the reg.

I certainly needed it at your place yesterday Alasdair :lol: :lol: :lol: I almost felt the need to be roped between my car and your workshop due to the wind!

I felt like a great explorer cross the Arctic... makes you fully understand why the old railwaymen used to call your neck of the woods 'Siberia' :twisted:

Gosh it was rough down your way yesterday!!!

Sun is shining here today...

You might want to rope the chicken houses and chickens to the ground tonight as there's another bout of very strong wind forecast across the whole of the south again for tomorrow. #-o

We could do with a 'Delete post because we weren't paying enough attention' button on the forum :)

Admins and Mods can delete for you but only on request. We never delete anything unless we have explicit permission to do so from the poster...

I you wonder what happens to the occasional posts or thread that seems to disappear from general view for whatever reason, they go into a special quarantine area and do not get deleted...
