    No, I thought not.

    Actually this time of year is very similar here as it is there... The locals hide indoors all day burning s**t-loads of electricity to change the temperature, half the cafes and restaurants in town are closed for the month and all the tourists are 1000 miles further south.

    Well it's all matter of perspective really isn't it.? . . . Could say Goole is tropical compared to the north pole, those 2 deg make a big difference.!
    Could also say it's a water sports paradise because all the surrounding fields are flooded.. Oh and I'll soon have an indoor swimming pool in my below sea level warehouse when Storm Dennis tops up the already fit to burst River Ouse flood defenses.

    But I'll tell you what I wouldn't swap them for all the freezing cold water in the river Ouse for those fires they have been dealing with.!!

    And now some of the people affected by the fires are being hit again by floods! It's certainly a country of extremes. We fortunately missed being hit by cyclone Damian last week, the people of Karatha got him instead, and I've got my fingers crossed for your warehouse staying dry.

    Actually I'm jealous. Stuck in my idyllic, remote little corner of Western Australia I'm surrounded by people who know about boats and fishing (and golf for some inexplicable reason) but there's nobody I know within two day's driving distance who want's to come round with a packet of hobnobs and talk about CNC machines
    I feel for ya Bro....

    Thanks mate. I think you're nearer 5 days drive away at 3500Km. At least you've got the McLaren Vale wineries to distract you.
