  1. Clocking on officially for winter 2018/19 have a feeling this is going to be a bramer, wishing I still had Subaru Forester !
  2. Fort William now bitterly cold, diddily squat snow. -4 and no frost to scrape off ! The Least from the East !
  3. Fort William still cold, still diddily squat snow . New car, claims it's -4 but I didn't need to scrape off Frost ! Still the Least from the East.
  4. Fort William cold, diddily squat snow, according to Netweather we're looking at practically 14 days sub zero with hee haw precipitation The Least from the East !
  5. Sitting in car 4 miles north of Fort William 4C and sleaty and rain currently 1.10pm.
  6. Ach well for the first time in 5 years of buying winter tyres, looks like the Nokian Weatherproofs will get a proper work out next week !
  7. Tyres ! first time I've seen the difference the right tyres make. Nokian Weatherproofs a 4 season tyre from Finland. Daughters taxi can't get them to work yesterday morning comes to a halt 1 mile from work on a big hill. I live about a mile away, gets the the call drives up the hill stops where their taxi had abandoned them, pick them up and proceed to drive up the hill no fuss no drama, no wheel spin. Ordinary FWD car utterly transformed by tyres.
  8. Would just like to highlight that I am awaiting a new set of winter tyres from Oponeo. In the last few years this action has been sufficient to kill any snow/cold weather stone dead. However they are not due to arrive until Friday by the time they'll be fitted it will be next week. Decided even the mid life crisis car needed winter boots this year !
  9. Reporting for duty been lurking but here for winter 2017/18 got a feeling in my water it's going to be 2010/11/12 style winter lots of snow. Going into it with last year's Nokian Weatherproofs switched rears on the front and vice versa, daughter's on a new set of Goodyear 4 Seasons 2's.
  10. Has everybody been scunnered, given up and left the forum till next winter ?, most solid snow forecast for tomorrow this winter for the West Highlands hardly any comments.
  11. Here in FW Netweather says 5C and sleet car outside temp says 2C and it's snow and Hail.
  12. Temp outside now 10C but the wind chill is amazing, out for a few mins and fingers were freezing.
