We're on the edge of the "Red Warning" area down here in Devon, but still snowed in!

That's us, on the extreme left of frame! I saw the farmer's son's Subaru get up and down the hill a couple of hours ago, but nothing since! All the main roads are blocked. The council say they will send the gritters out at 3pm TOMORROW! What do we pay these cretins for?

Still, a chance to get some building done!

Wings and tail feathers already complete:

Ah, well, back to see if the glue is dry yet......

I took my ski-equipped Tundra out yesterday and flew it as the snow tipped down. Tx was safely inside a clear plastic cover. See video **LINK**

Yes, I must be honest I didn't take much notice of the fact that my car had a heated front screen - dismissing it as a bit of a gimick to be honest - but it been invaluable the last few days!

Regarding "idiots doing daft things in the snow" I think part of the problem is newer drivers who just haven't experienced these sort of conditions before. I've watched some of them brake or accelerate hard-ish for the conditions and look genuinely mystified as to why the car is sliding sideways!! They have this touching faith in technology!

I think experience has a lot to do with it. I'm working in Eastern Ukraine at the moment, we had 3" of snow today alone. This is on top of the existing stuff that has turned to solid ice over the Winter. There are no gritters, snow ploughs or anything, they don't salt the roads, nothing. The agencies that would do these have totally collapsed. It falls to -20C overnight and struggles to get to -10C during the day. And yet, cars, buses and lorries continue to slip and slide but generally reach their location. Admittedly some can afford studded tyres but most cars are doing well to have visible tread on them, never mind studs. Most cars here would be scrapped by British standards. But everyone carries on here fairly much as normal, I can only assume that it's because they get a lot of practice each and every year.
