I most the houses we work in now heatings flat out. Fair enough put the heating on but they got it like a sauna. Must hurt them when they step outside

I think it's the fact it comes and goes. Frost then snow but it melts in a couple days then it's wet slush then snow again or just iced up rather than none or good few weeks of it. So brings things to mayhem

Yeah my one second walk to the car I have noticed its colder. Then I just sit in an airconditioned office so dont really notice it. I also drive a Ford so have a heated front windscreen and mirrors so never scrape the windscreen.

I've had to scrape my windows twice in the past week or so. Think we may be in for another bad one this year.
Anyone else with sky notice the Christmas channels have already started this week? It's not even the middle of October FFS Sad

You guys have got it easy, here (Sydney, Australia) we have daylight saving.  
The chooks have stopped laying, the cows milk curdles, the curtains are fading and most important, the cook's cranky so you never know what you'll end up with for dinner, that is if you get any. 
Sheez, talk about complain.  
Woody isn't affected as bad as us down south, cause he doesn't have daylight saving in his neck of the woods.
But aye, when it is cold here we have the same, people rugged up to the nines and them some and in the office they turn the air conditioning up to 26 or 28 degrees, get broiled at work.
Know your weather conditions well guys, so can commiserate with you.

Yeah, this time of year is a real grind for you soap dodgers!  Went out for a drive with the wife and kids today, scoping out some roads in the hills near my home.  Found some good ones for heading back with the R soon!

Looks very nice but make sure your air filter is cleaned regular looks dusty. Plus trying to pull one back for the uk team early mornings when the roads are quiet and the dew is still on the grass. Cool moist dense air getting rammed into the cooler makes for a fast R . And drifting in the snow such fun.
