    Does anyone know the coldest temperatures recorded in February 1985 and 1979? We could be looking at the coldest temperature in February since 1955!

    As expected the lower temperatures were to be found down in the valley.

    This is the scene on the B992 between my village and Whitehouse.

    This morning has given the lowest temperatures of 2010 a run for their money.

    I've always found car temperature readings to be not dissimilar to those of the nearest official sites - when I see pictures like this it does make me wonder how cold it really gets in sweet spots with no official station. 

    No thermometer here but it feels a little redundant just now to quote numbers - it's freezing! 🥶 but lovely and sunny. I often find the main perk of cold spells during winter, and especially now given the strength of the sun, is that you can do a little bit of living room sunbathing 🙂

    😆 I love snow I love when it's cold to keep the snow... I love extreme weather and seeing records broken.... However I will wait till later for a walk when it warms up to - 3ish.... I need my kids to not hate me anymore than they already do 😅

    They got over it were once they were bought breakfast treats (bribes)! There's actually a slight warmth to the sun too so it wasn't too bad 😀

    Probably 95. Was -double digits and remember going to start cars every day in Glasgow so they didn’t freeze too much. Being a young lad it was rather exciting
