Arrrrh, more snow this morning here, and its still coming down, fallen off my bike three times in the past few days, fingers crossed that the met office gives a glimmer of hope when it updates the forecast, it does look better for the the weekend.

I have been chatting to Brooklands by phone today - their staff are working from home as the museum is closed and at best they are considering only limited opening on Sunday.

On this basis I've taken the decision to accept their offer of rescheduling our event to another date.

C5-25 will now be taking place on Sunday 7th February.

I will be contacting as many people as possible, but would appreciate it if you could spread the word - especially as we've been putting up posters etc.

 :'( I hope I can still attend, as I'm waiting for a letter from the hospital for an operation and I won't be able to drive for about three weeks.

i think it very very wise and have altered my diary, even though today (in Essex) the weather is mild and no big freeze much vaunted and promised last night on all the weather forecasts.

so i went into Liverpool Street station bt train after deciding not to scoot or drive based on the so very foreboding weather forecasts. based on them i had expected arctic freeze and doom of the word conditions.

so i don loads of layers i.e. thermal vest + heavy shirt + heavy sweater + heavy weatherproof jacket +  whats up doc hat + seamans socks and hiking boots,  then embarked on the 10 minute walk to Wickford Station - where on arriving i nearly passed out from heating exhaustion  >:(


so accurate weather forecasts? = bar humbug morelike !!!!

7th is better for me as i wont be on nights.  I was looking forward to the 10th though as that date tied in perfect with the history.  Still you can't always have your cake and eat it.

Looks as though the 7th will be okay for most of us so we're all "on hold" till then  8)

...talking of cake - what about the one Mrs Umpa got for event ?
