    It’s well and truly N-1 weather here in Ireland. I think I can safely hang up the M-41 for the next four months.

    Milder today, 2 to 5 Celsius but with a bit of rain and sleet. Aero Barnstormer again, as it tends to be with me when it's around the 0 to 10 degrees with rain/sleet/hail or snow. Fantastic coat for rugging up in with a jumper.

    And Peter, doesn't it just make you smile when the temperate drops and the days and nights get chillier.

    Started my Saturday with some tip time on my 9'6" on a nice little glassy not too busy point break. Sleeveless neoprene vest was possibly overkill. I'm not jealous one bit!

    You've really thrown yourself into surfing Andrew, good to hear it too. I surfed back in NZ from when I was about 13 to 18 until a nasty incident with a shark off the east coast.

    Funnily enough there's starting to be a bit of a thing now for surfers to come here and surf under the Northern Lights, although you need a bit more than a spring suit ;)

    The Pea Coat is one of my favorites. I always throw one in the truck when I head up north to colder weather. Works great with blue jeans or casual pants and dress shirt. Looks good Mikey.

    Not much point in trying to take pics Steve, it's pitch dark by 2:30pm!

    We don't need those silly things, they just interrupt and hide the beauty of the Northern Lights ;)

    (Which just happen to be going on right now as it's stopped snowing and cleared up)

    Oh Smithy........
    you've got to post a picture of that. That sounds absolutely beautiful. The northern lights right outside your front door.
    That's just a dream for most of us in the US.
    Cheers:)

    No worries B-M2! We have them every night from now until Feb/March so long as it's clear. I've just switched phones as my old one literally died and which unfortunately had a ton of photos of them on. They're archived on a flashdrive so I'll drag some photos out for you.

    It's overcast at the moment otherwise I'd snap some pics of them right now ;)
