Frozen solid enough to stop boating here, but not yet solid enough to drive a skidoo on them.

of course, that doesn't stop some of the... dimmer bulbs in the box, as it were.   %)

Westport Lake in Stoke-on-Trent has been frozen over for couple of weeks now preventing any sailing. I am going down today to check it out if I get time, Dave. :(

Popped over to Bournville last week and there was at least 3 to 4 inches of ice. Measured scientifically by sticking my hand in the gap round the edge!

While it has probabaly thawed a bit over the last few days I can see it solidifying again this weekend.

...a couple more inches and you could have a good ice hockey game {-), perhaps an Ice Breaker is in order.
