On the 7th Dec I went out at 9.00 to see if I could get to Kedleston in the car. The cars temp gauge read minus eight in Mickleover, but along Radbourne Common it dropped to minus 15.5! I could not get to Kedleston so turned around and on the way back took this picture.
I remember commuting to work (cycle) at minus 14.0 in the eighties. My tyres were so hard they might as well have been steel rims. I think there will be ample opportunity for those who wish to experience this in the coming months.
