Let me kick off the first NSW post - firstly well done on creating a new forum.

I used to post alot in WZ group - guess it died down with social media - we all enjoyed the forums away from the banter on other streams.

I work day to day with Airlines - so these last couple of days and not forgetting the snow previous weekend, it does cause havoc on airlines, but - in the same instance - i love severe cold weather.
