There was frost on the garage roof this morning. I really ought to sort out a heater for Fenchurch soon because the only way to stop the windscreen misting up when it's cold outside is to drive with the window open. An interesting thing I noticed this morning is that the temperature gauge stays quite low until the thermostat opens, at which point it rapidly climbs to normal running temperature. It's as if the sensor was on the radiator side of the thermostat, except I know it isn't - I suspect poor water flow around the sensor is to blame rather than any real problem with the cooling system.
