Know what this is?

Know what this is people?

Ice.  On the windscreen.  Last week!

20th March, to be precise

Got in the car   3°C

One hour later  7°C

Drove only 20 mins west and dropped approx. 400m in elevation  23°C

I’m moving house.


  1. Being a Macedon resident Michael, I feel your pain. When it’s good it’s really good, but when not, it’s horrid!!

  2. At least you have a sense of humor about it all!

    1. Just wait until the 10th frost. There’ll be no sense of humour left, and seven months of winter weather to go

  3. Moving house? Don’t believe it, we know you love it up there in the frost!

  4. Just think about all the plants you wouldn’t be able to grow by moving to a warmer climate !!!
