    Gloriously shot from Chateau Domenec a couple of hours after fucking off the
    office sharply, listening to some "it won't be that hard" comments from
    other bikers. Bikers who haven't lived for a year in the Alps, nor had been
    part of the university ski team, so they don't know the type of snow flakes
    that means "this is serious stuff coming"- In a war I'd be a coward, but a
    living coward :)

    Blimey. When was the last time it did that?

    Must be quite a sight from Tibidabo?

    Tarragona early this year had ferking great snowfalls. I travelled the
    Zaragoza-Barcelona highway and you would believe you were in the Alps =:-o

    I remember other snowfalls in '85, '99, '01 and '05, this one looks like a
    good one.

    But he Big One was back in '62, 50cm of snow!

    Tibidabo was showing some white this morning, and local police had closed
    the access. Now vehicles accessing the neighbourhoods on the mountain (100
    metres above sea level) are having serious fun.

    Tomorrow morning I hope to get some stunning pics from the office and
    Chateau D'om.

  10. Indeed. The damn thing just isn't igniting, and it wasonly serviced six
    weeks ago, too.

    And a 12V fag lighter just in case it runs out of petrol.

    Not the coast, but the center is *cold* (600metres above sea level, mind).

    Same here. The irrationalrageometer was off the scale this morning. I
    really need to wake up gently whilst standing under a hot shower for
    several minutes before I can get going. Didn't help that this was the
    day I'd committed to riding my push bike to work either.

    Lucky my plumber happens to have similar drinking tastes to myself
    (lots) so I got priority service, just heard he's managed to get it
    going again and a new expansion vessel should be delivered tomorrow to
    guarantee the fix.
