Exclamation

Ummm, heh, there is more to that Ding than, "Hey Dude, its cold out here!"

The DING is an audible indicator that the outside temperature (38 degrees F / 3 Degrees C) is at the temperature where Black Ice begins to form!

Black Ice is a very thin layer of ice - most often invisible to the eye, that can coat the road's surface and like visible ice on the road, it can quickly send you out of control..

When you hear the DING sound; if the temperature is rising, then no more chance for black ice. Conversely, if the temperature is falling, be aware of possible black ice and drive correctly for the conditions: http://www.howtodothings.com/automotive/a3240-how-to-drive-on-black-ice.html

Shame that Pirate. JB has decided to go on an energy saving mission as suggested by the UK Government. Therefore, ALL lights and electrical goods will be turned off/disconnected during the hours of 22:00hrs and 09:00hrs daily until further notice or until the threat of glbal warming has subsided considerably!!

Now, about that shopping list....................!
