Am i being overly concerned about the potential of snow causing chaos with food deliveries??

I really, really hope we avoid it.

if you mean the takeaway apps .
Nope no chance they close, they just cover themselves by sending a text out to the couriers that says something like " There's high winds and snow forecast for tomorrow and the roads may be icy and dangerous, we'll throw you an extra shiny coin per delivery you complete. Only work if it's safe to do so. .

I worked on my road bike last snowmageddon

Yeah, can definitely sympathise with you on that one (i'm a courier myself). I meant specifically groceries but, yeah, in general anything that needs to go from A to B, there's a lot of people depending on things arriving on their doorsteps right now.

Have you got winter tyres for your bike?

No , I've got 23mm track tyres the trick is to go fast enough that the thrill of speed overtakes the fear of death.
I've been doing a fair few supermarket deliveries at the moment , so even if the supermarkets do stop you can a fairly good range through Stuart/Roo

Just had a random storm come and go. One minute it's a dreary, drizzly day, the next it was like someone had opened the gates of hell. Black sky, really loud booming thunder, full on torrent of rain, followed by full on torrent of hail. Then back to rain. Lasted about 20 mins.
It's still raining heavily but nothing like that 20 min show. It was quite impressive.

^ I thought I was imagining things when I heard a clap of thunder. The rain sounded like hailstones clattering off the window

Want an earth is going on with the weather? It's nearly June for goodness sakes!

It's way too hot and humid today.

Come back cooler weather, all if forgiven!
