I thought perhaps if anyone had any good snow pictures it might help some of us feel a bit cooler. That’s my hope anyway!

    @janer1967 you may need to imagine making a snowball with bare hands, or laying in it making a snow angel, etc. I’m looking at the picture whilst holding the fridge door open! ?

    I’ve just had a hot water bottle in the freezer for about an hour or so and paced it under my feet and that’s helping nicely. Anything to bring down the core temp. As a safety warning I wouldn’t advise freezing the bottle and then holding it directly against skin,  common sense applies please folks.

    That's not fair, I didn't realise you were on a snowboard @leeCal :D

    Unfortunately for you, I'm well equipped.

    I've never seen one in real life @leeCal, but maybe I'll be adding it to the Christmas list this year.

    Hmm you might have got me there with the snow dome @leeCal. I could employ the use of a hammer, but it's too pretty to break!
