    Officially it isn't cold , yes it's trying to snow , yes I spent half an hour outside sorting kit for a pool session at Basildon Sunday and froze but the official marker for "it's cold" is when your postie wears long trousers and mine just knocked and was still in SHORTS ! So it ain't cold yet. I need a hot choccy ......

    In Portland it never gets cold as the posties here wear shorts all through the winter, the sea swimmers keep going, and the Christmas Day harbour swim in Weymouth is well attended.

    It must be an age thing, it feels bloody cold in Suffolk today. I'm going to a BSAC lecture tonight about 25m away - sleet and hail forecast. The good thing is that I think that I'll be able to finish the SD course with a week in Malta in January.

    There’s no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing.

    my postie wears shorts all year round. My brother lives in Penzance and last year when it snowed he still never got long trousers out. it takes a lot to get him to change out of flip flops
