It's now started snowing on the wrong side of the Pennines here in Cheadle, although the trip all the way over from York on the M62 was clear.

I'm currently on a boat with Mrs M coming back into harbour in Reykjavik, Iceland. We've been out at sea looking at the Northern Lights. It's about -7°C, plenty of frost and ice about but not much snow.

Driving back home from Manchester Airport might be a problem later this week.
