Shall we go or shall we stay now?


Above, Caxton's current mooring which is getting increasingly muddy as the cold weather has receded today.  We are, however, are anticipating a further cold snap to hit tonight according to the Met Office and that might see us frozen in again.  What do you do? Do you stay near to services or head off in the the great grey yonder when harsh weather threatens?  From the example of other boaters hereabouts the answer is to stay put and help each other out.  Graham and Jill have just been given a brace of partridge by NB Telford and Joe and Graham are going to get in some coal from Proctors, the local coal merchant, for a  lady boater moored nearby.   Indeed we have just bought in ten 25k bags of Taybrite/supertherm coal for £8.80 a bag which is now crammed into Caxton's modest well deck. So our movements will depend on the accuracy, or not,  of the severe weather warning - 'shall we go or shall we stay now' - and who sang that?

It was a hit for The Clash although I seem to remember an earlier song along the same lines?
