My car was out and about yesterday and was fine most of the time even in 6+ inches of snow.
This morning though temp was -6 and all the snow had frozen, and the main roads hadn't been gritted or ploughed so my second service is going to have to wait til a week on Monday, by which point it'll be about 700 miles overdue :/

I haven't moved mine since Tuesday night but i might brave it tomorrow morning depending on how the weather goes. She looks quite pretty covered in a blanket of snow! At just under 2 weeks old, i dont think ill have a problem with her starting etc.

I had a bit of an iffy slip yesterday, my rear wheels were on a bit of sloping grass and my poor Fiesta was wheel spinning like crazy! Thank god for the two helpful souls who came out to help push me back onto the road. If it hadn't been for them I'd have been there for a long time, as it was, I was just there for a couple of minutes.

The cabin smelt of burnt clutch though... :(

We still have some snow today, most of it is just frozen but I will be going to the local store tomorrow with my mum for the weekly shop. Not going to the nearest Tesco like normal. But I go back to work on Saturday so that will be interesting... The roads will be gritted fine so long as it isn't snowing non stop.

Had no choice!

Had to go to work! Been on the early shift (5am starts) since the freeze started so no public transport then even if I wanted to use it. I work on public transport anyway so have to get in to help others get to work.

Roads have not been good close to home though the main roads not too bad.

Just took it VERY easy.

Last thing I want is an incident in my new car.

No problems starting and heats up quickly. Definate bonus is the heated windscreen!

Would definatlely rather not venture out at all!

Day off tomorrow so car will not be moving.

Been out in mine today, bit slippy but he coped fine with it! It's just fresh snow on the roads he seems to have issues with! Luckily my nice boss let us finish at 3:30 today so as we can get home safely in the light before the ice kicks in. Same tomorrow :)

I think of mine as a... what the hell am i going on about.. it's a !Removed! car that gets me from A to B. Mine couldn't be a girl anyway due to the amount of profanities that I use which I would never use in the presence of the fairer !Removed!, whilst driving the highways and byways stuffed up the rear end of Geordie slow boy in his ickle Fiesta, with his "My other cars a Lotus" sticker in the back. ;)

My girlfriend shouted at me the other day when somebody cut me up... they were driving a 10 year old Corsa and overtook me and them tried to pull into the side of me. I made a slightly sexually suggestive hand movement and she went mad. Of course when we got to the next set of traffic lights the Fiesta left the Corsa for dust. Think he probably had a 'my other cars a Lotus' sticker too!

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Surely the sticker would say M3 instead of Lotus? What are you guy's on about anyway, Keith has an older M3 that you can buy second hand for the same price as a new Fiesta!! He doesn't drive a brand new 55 grand one!!!
I'm almost detecting snobbery on here?? If I win the lotto I would look and a new M3 and a Jag XFR, plus a 4X4 for the snow hehe.

And also I would like to say I have WAY more van drivers up my backside daily then any BMW, Audi or Merc.

I'm always getting it me, from the steely stare to pitiful laughter coming from the passenger seat. Sometimes, I just can't help myself and it can be the smallest thing in the world. the wife says she's gonna plant a mic in the car and record me when I'm on my own, I told her not to bother, her C90 would finish before I got to work. ;)

I just hate inconsiderate drivers.
