It’s a lovely day today.
The sky is blue with ne’er a cloud in sight. It’s fucking cold but what the hell.
However the meeja is going into meltdown over a cold snap that is supposed to hit during the week. Banner headlines scream about “exceptionally cold weather” and the forecasters are having orgasms. The entire country is going to grind to a standstill and no one will be prepared. Certainly the “grinding to a halt” bit is true because you only have to whisper the word “snow” here and instantly all traffic drives at five miles an hour whether there is any precipitation of any kind or not.
Going on past performance, we may get a few flurries. It may even cover the ground but it’s not likely to hang around too long. This is a dose of cynicism based on a lot of wolf crying on the part of the Met service, so if I’m wrong then it’s all their fault. They should have learned by now not to shout out their coloured warnings so often. Idiots.
There’s only one problem.
It is going to get a drop colder, and there’s no denying that.
And I have just noticed that the little nozzle icon is flashing on my oil gauge.
I’m nearly out of oil.
