    you need to out run it

    I would suggest you out run the rain and sleet and snow.. head South, about 1,000 miles and you should be OK

    Loads of heavy rain and sleet showers in Dumfries today and also lovely sunshine.

    Picked the van up today was in for MOT service and timing belt and needs a wash before we head off on Friday so hope its dry tomorrow if not will get it done before we head to France on the 30th

    Thanks for posting the video of Hello Mudda!

    I had a look for the Alan Sherman one, but couldn't see anything for it. Always a favourite on Ed Stewpot Stewart's Junior Choice, on the radio on a Saturday morning.......many moons ago :Laughing:
    Happy days!:thumb:

    Hi Gerry!
    It's absolutely heaving it down over here, it was sleety rain earlier on, but think it's just rain now and very windy. Outlook for the weekend is at least milder and drier:thumb: You'll be looking forward to France I bet:Smile:

    We're off to Largs on Saturday morning..........woo hoo, at last:thumb:
