Re: Snow.

Post by myglaren »

Only very vague memories of snow before 1978, when we came back from Sweden. Plenty of snow there of course, just taken as normal weather.

It was that winter, or the following one, when we were snowed in.
had to walk six miles to work. Only my neighbour and I and two others turned up and were sent back home again.

In the early sixties there was a bit of excitement. My dad worked at Fylingdales BMEWS and they sent a helicopter to take him to work, landed in the hospital grounds at the end of the street.
He did have to stay there for a fortnight before they brought him back for a long weekend at home, and a very generous bonus :)
