At 7.15, there was frost, on my grass.

Woowee.

Why not celebrate by taking a boat trip around the North Pole. You have at least a month before you will need to worry about ice blocking your passage.

That's really quite interesting. Looking round this morning's Met Office returns from http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/uk/nw/nw_latest_temp.html

I found the lowest was Aviemore at 3.9 and, in England, Shap at 5.8 degrees at 5am. Beware the dangerous frost hollows of South Lancashire.

*shakes head, sucks in breath* Sounds like the beginnings of glacier formation to me. There's no time to waste DomJ - you'd better flee down south before the rapidly advancing ice sheets cut off your retreat.

I live in Devon and it was quite nippy this morning, going south isn't going to help. It is clear that we are entering a new ice age and GW is a load of old tosh. Buy thermals.
