Well, it looks like winter he finally arrive in Bristol! This morning I left the house while it was -3 degrees outside. I learnt some valuable lessons about the cold and my car:

1) My City El warms up the windscreen faster than the Prius.

2) when it's below freezing you really need to keep the heater on the windscreen otherwise it all re-freeze on you!

I'm halfway through my artic day and the city el is doing great. It is a tad slower than usual but doing ok.

Up is everyone else doing in this cold spell?

I found out why the city el wasn't taking off this week and it wasn't due to the cold. Turns our my shunt was on its way out and had a nice crack in it.

When its all fixed I will let you know how its really doing!
