Stand outside for more than a minute or two, and despite wearing the finest anorak technology meagre wages can buy, you'll feel the storm slip questing, cold, pervy little fingers between the waistband of those technical overtrousers and your previously toasty skin. Sod this, I think, and get back in the car, leaving photographer Leighton outside to take more pictures. He looks shipwrecked. I smile and crank the heater. He smiles back, but it doesn't reach his eyes.
