How cold?!

Car dashboard reading minus 7 degrees Celsius

How cold was it today?! -7° Celsius, that’s how cold it was first thing this morning! That’s a photo (above) of the temperature readout on the Vauxhall Astra just before I headed off for an 8 o’clock team meeting today.

Last night, driving back from the Soulfly gig, through the freezing fog — where at one point I could hardly see the front of the car the fog was so thick — the temperature dropped to -8.5° C.

The lowest I’ve experienced it in the last few years was -15° C driving through Aviemore on our way south on the A9 from Inverness. Now that was definitely cold.

The great thing about this cold spell is that when we arrived back from Eddie and Rebecca’s this evening it was 1.5° C and it felt positively warm!
