What's this current fuss all about? When I was a child ....
My mum used walk a mile to take me to school - she'd have my brother in one of those big wheeled prams and me sitting on the back edge with my feet keeping warm inside.
|The pram in 1961 with me inside, but the same one was used four years later for my brother|
So, will everyone please stop being complete wusses!! Here in Barnsley the snow is currently about 4 inches deep. Schools are closed, firms are sending people home early, even the history group I attend didn't meet this morning.
The year before last I had to dig our car out twice from more snow than this. And picking a few veg for tea involved wading through nearly a foot of snow. Look - here's the proof!
Rant over ... see you all in the thaw!
