Will the freeze never end!

Not sure what the weather is like in your part of the world but here in Scotland it's freezing! There has been non stop snow and very low temperatures (-18C!) for over three weeks now and to be honest its becoming a pain in the arse. The roads are terrible and haven't been treated enough, mainly due to the incompetence of the people who manage such things and of course the Scottish government and officials who are surprised when it gets cold and snows, this is Scotland for Gods sake!! On the same latitude as Sweden Latvia Canada and Russia so why wouldn't it be cold!
This is the price we pay for living in an area of outstanding beauty i suppose but do we need to accept the muppets who run the country? (Apologies the muppets are entertaining at least)
The biggest hassle of course is that I can't get out on my bike at all and that's not good for my mental health, spent a few hours in the garage yesterday rebuilding the UJ and shaft on the Guzzi that exploded a few weeks ago as we are supposed to be going to a bike rally in a week and a half (Yes camping!) All we can hope for is that the temperature rises to at least zero soon so that we can get the road cleared enough to get the bikes out.
If you are from the Scottish Government and reading this then stop reading and get this farce sorted, Edinburgh is a joke! If I could ski I'd ski to work (theoretical work that is!)
Keep smiling anyway it can't last forever..........can it?
