    Must be the global warming that’s causing all this snow Bobcat!

    @paul-m, ha ha ha  you could be on to something there 🤔 OR it could be something to do with the next three moon phases, November is Beaver Moon ( first of the frost moon phases) January is Wolf Moon, February is Snow Moon (the bringer of frosts and snow). I have no way of knowing if any of it is true but that’s what old tales and fable say😯

    Winter weather update, whilst there are places that have had snow and cold weather there’s no significant amounts that is coursing any problems. Predictions are the weather is likely to get worse early/mid November…….. watch this space 👍

    @bobcat: I am a bit disappointed to be honest. I have been driving the Alpin Pilot 5 for four weeks now in the hope to encounter at least some winter conditions. I even crossed the Alps at high altitude (Gotthard, San Bernardino) and traveled along the Italian Apennines. No snow as far as the eye can see. Some promising -1 °C in the early morning developed into a fantastic sunny indian summer afternoon with 20 °C. At least we enjoyed the aperitivo on the piazza every day.
    The tyres are still brilliant after 2600 km, but I think my timing was rather poor this year. Last year, when I was in Saas Fee in mid September, we had 1 foot of fresh snow on the road (Grand Saint Bernard) and chaos all over the place. Next time we might be more lucky. Cheers 😎

    @71-bda: Yes, driving across the Alps was a real adventure those days. I remember the Tremola, the cobblestone paved road on the Gotthard which is still open besides the fast road. I once tried it with my Mondeo at 50 km/h – a real nightmare suspensionwise…

     

     

    BTW: On this trip I had about 7 refills with my RS. I observed the following behaviour:
    Italian motorway service areas are build such that you park your car first and go to the bathroom, have a coffee and refill your car afterwards. The car stays still for at least 20 minutes. When filling the empty tank to the automatic stop and with two good top-ups the engine will start immediately without cranking…

    Anyway, tomorrow she’s going into the shop for preparation for the MOT on Wednesday. Hopefully, I will know more about the fuel tank ventilation.

    Cheers 😎

    @Frenk, sorry to disappoint, the world weather is not playing ball. The forecast is cool/cold and wet for the next 10/15 days for Europe, even Northern China which is normally well below minus with several centimetres of snow is late this year. Hopefully by next week there’ll be more to report 😸👍
