January 9th: After a couple of months of rain, frost and snow it's barely above freezing but the roads have dried up so an opportunity to drive a couple of times round the few hundred yard loop that doesn't get salted to run the engines and turn the wheels otherwise the tyres will flat-spot. A few days later it's dried up from rain which has washed the salt off so an opportunity for a decent spin in Vee - a sunny afternoon so why I didn't think to come back and go straight out in Bee I don't know. She had to wait another couple of weeks, roads dry locally but the lanes have quite a bit of water draining off the fields after more heavy rain so she gets wetter than I would have liked, but such is life, and quite a bit more ice, snow, salt and rain follows into February.
