    Going to get the car out tonight.
    They don't seem to have gritted yet so I'm taking advantage of a dry night before winter kicks in.

    A couple of guys have already said they'll be keen to meet up.
    Come along if you don't have much on.

    I'll run recon in the Alfa before I set off just to make sure they haven gritted but it should be all good.

    Don't mind what time we meet.
    I guess 8pm unless anyone else has better ideas.

    That's wonderful news :doh:

    They didn't grit down this way last night (to my knowledge).
    It's dry today and this evening but it will cloud over and rain in the early hours and temperatures will increase due to cloud cover.
    Because of is, I can't see them gritting tonight.
    It would be pointless and a waste of money and resources.

    I'll run recon at around 7.30pm anyway.
    May even take some swab samples of some roads and run tests..

    Thanks for the heads up.
    That's isn't encouraging at all.
    I'll have to check the roads later.
    If they've gritted, I won't take the car out.

    Just came back from taking my old Volvo diesel to the car wash after eight months sitting on the drive, turned into my Avenue and got sprayed with a shower of salt from a gritter! Very unusual that my road got gritted, especially as it's a Sat/Sunday. Forecast says minus 3 in Margate tonight, and a couple of degrees milder in North Kent. Glad I'm back off to Miami next week!

    Didn't need to do it either Steve. He's had his windows tinted this morning so he can't see it anyway. ☺

    Excellent job by the way Ash.
