My wife just got home, rather shaken up, she'd just seen an accident, a BMW was going round a corner infront of her, oversteered and spun into a hedge, she hit the same patch of black ice, and the car just stayed put, she was going about the same speed she said, so it wasnt the BMW driving badly.

Everyone in the BMW was fine, she stopped to check, they jsut drove it out of the hedge and went on their way. She came home shaking and explained, she was driving at 30 all the way home from there. She seems to think had the car not been AWD she would have done the same thing.

PLEASE BE CAREFUL IN THE SNOW FOLKS!

LOL

FIres have been lit all day, all of my radiators are blasting heat. Were all good here.

The dogs are curled up in front of me at the fire, Claire is cooking dinner.

Well, maybe after dinner you might do a little "cooking" for her, you know, return the favor? :devil:

Never stopped us.. whatsamatter?! No door on the master bedroom?! LOL

Yes, he could but he probably wouldn't like the cost of housing here though he would likely come out OK. Also, when it rains here folks on the road seam to forget how to keep traction! They are so used to good weather they don't know how to act when it rains! :cookoo: :bang2:

Indeed!

Unfortunately we have to get really old first, because Claire has some time before retiremement, though. She may take early retirement if i can persuade her, I dont want her teaching until shes 60!

For some of us, there's no other alternative, (unless I count the cats). Not all of us have lovely wives like you and Craig.

Glad to hear that Claire is OK. I don't mind driving in snow, but black ice is a killer.

Thanks for your kind words. She is positive that had she been in the S she would have done the same thing as the Beemer and probably hit it.

Shes sitting int he snug ( a little room off the library with a log burner) reading at the moment with a stiff drink, glad to be home. Snow still bleaching down here.

..and that is precisely why it is up to guys like Craig and I to do our part for the rest of manhood around the world. To be beacons of light and hope to those unfortunate, hapless saps who've been jilted, dumped or overlooked. To boldly go where others wish they could! To............ oh, never mind......
