Indeed - we've had a few frosts recently which I have neglected to mention - 6 in the last 10 days or so. The best was -2.2°C on 21st. We didn't dip below zero this morning, but my windscreen was iced over still. Looks like we might get a couple more before the glorious weather ends and usual rainy service is resumed.
