All of the sudden, you're going to feel warmer...  

But if its 30deg then that means is 40deg colder than texas. thats a lot colder.

If i think in Celcius its only about 15deg colder.......

Im confused now 

...yesterday I couldnt spell enginner...now I are one!......

It's been a crystal-clear, sunny day here! You should come and visit us one day Pierre, the weather's lovely!

Besides, you would see paint on the walls this time....

You're right about the cold.  Very seasonal at the moment and very foggy especially around Gatwick and Heathrow.  Safe journey.  (Better put the ice hockey gear on).

Carshalton, you're giving us a glimpse of the truth - just lose the milk and the  sugars, and there'll be something decent for the morning.

I do like tea as well, and nothing can warm you up quicker than a cup of tea after a cold sail. Better tell BBSC to stock up...
