I think you're a bit sheltered from reality living in beautiful sunny Newquay mate Wish I lived in Cornwall by the way, my favourite place in the world!
Yes I know, we are quite fortunate. THe best way of telling if its winter or summer in Cornwall is the temperature of the rain. If it's warm rain its summer, if it's cold it's winter.

I know certain areas of the country do suffer more than others with snow,ice etc - the advice given is good advice. Just not sure that changing oil to a winter grade is necessary in any part of the UK.
