I'd love to go, but given the weather forecast I think I'm going to give this one a miss and hope to meet up next time.
We'd love to have you :)

We are keeping an eye on the weather forecast and will make a call early on Saturday morning as to whether we postpone, but Saturday looks ok at the moment (Friday is forecast snow). I work just around the corner, as does Grant, so we should have an idea of local conditions that actually materialise on Friday.
If this snow doesn't melt I'll be marooned in my drive as I am on a steep slope in a quiet crescent with no traffic or gritting to clear a track.
That means you'll be down a charge cable also. Sorry.
Note we are still going ahead. The weather is forecast to be better tomorrow, the roads are clear and we expect enough people to be there to make it worthwhile.

I hope you can make it Richard. You have a few hours to get the shovel out :)
I'm not clearing the whole road! Also not risking ploughing my pristine Ampera into the old LR Disco at the bottom of the hill, where it would be tricky to stop. Even with my old 4WD Audi Coupe it used to be treacherous getting out, even if getting back in was easier. I nearly had it sideways into my own garage door once - not even 4WD helps when a stationary car starts slipping sideways.

The forecast is for it to stay cold and so I don't expect to try and venture out before Monday, or Tuesday.

I'd bring my charger on the train if it didn't cost so much!

I hope its not too long before we can have another. I was all set to stay overnight with a friend who lives in the area and go out for a slap up meal in the evening. Oh Well.
We had a good meet-up this afternoon. The roads were clear, despite the BBC's best efforts to convince us the apocolypse was upon us. Quite an enjoyable snowy drive home on the back roads.
