Fu ck me! Thatís -15.5įC and itís only November! Here in the south of England, most years it doesnít drop into double digits below freezing, though there are times it does. I rode to work in -12įC (10įF) in January this year but those temperatures didnít last for long. With that said, itís looking like weíre in for a cold winter this year. Already had a few ground frosts, morning temperatures are only just above freezing now and as Iím writing this there is a tiny amount of snow falling which is really unusual for this time of year. Wonít amount to anything though as itís just melting as it hits the wet ground because of the rain last night.

I had 6* the other day coming into work at 5:30 am.
Friday's low is supposed to be 8* so opening day of deer season Saturday morning is gonna be a brisk one for my 80 yo Dad, high of 24* then back down to 9* at night.
Cold one to start the season so I wouldn't doubt if he ends up sitting in the box hut with me all weekend, be our 34th year we've hunted together. 
Best birthday present I get every year......and a deer.
