    Yesh, especially in that lovely warm lounge of yours!

    Doesn't bother me how cold it gets; just means putting extra logs on the fire!

    Marco.

    P.S it's turned out lovely here now, just as John's described in Weymouth

    3rd day in a row - cold, dark, damp, gloomy, depressing.

    Old enough to remember ( sadly ) the great freeze up of 62/63 where snow lay in London for weeks on end with plenty of days off school to enjoy it all.
    Still think of Boxing Day travelling from Fulham football ground to Ewell village in Surrey on the bus with the first fall of snow laying freshly on the ground, it still
    evokes great memories. Lost 1-0 to Man Utd ( Law Best etc ) btw, happy days, sort of.

    Wish I'd been around in '63 - a proper winter! Was it a white Christmas that year, too?

    . Not sure elsewhere but in London snow starting falling on Boxing Day and did nt bother to stop until early march. From memory Halifax football ground turned into a paying ice rink for skating lovers.
    Transport system and roads were in chaos. Big freeze of 63 Happy days.

    Wind coming from north east now and temperature has dropped five degrees from this morning.

    If we had snow and a big freeze like '63 this country would descend into absolute chaos as even 1 inch of snow on the roads brings gridlock! Everything is dependent completely on road transport and the supermarkets would soon be empty.

    I shudder to think how we would cope with a really bad winter with total disruption.

    we were snowed in as was the whole area . nothing in or out of the town for a long time. some foods and such became low and they forced a way through eventually. Snow was higher than the door
