Seems from your pic that they managed to move that sunken canal boat? ;)

We had a flake of snow yesterday, however it melted before I could take the photo.

This is the view of the Pier. http://www.drakesofbrighton.com/live-beach-cam.html

Well I use the lts in the snow as it's the only one I have with knobbly tyres usually I'm on the trek but that has city jets. When the Fisher gets finished that will be my new commuter with knobblys as it would be sacrilege to put slicks on that.
The train ride is to ease the 25 miles between stops with a 3mile ride either side of the stations. It handled surprisingly well in the snow as well I was quite pleased with it

Sorry to be off topic but I didn't think you could put bikes on trains anymore
