Yes, this sucks. No fun whatever now, and we’ve got a few more days to go it seems.
I read something about the big freeze in 1962/63 – it didn’t thaw until March! Here’s some more info:
Of course, in those days they didn’t have:
- Cars with funky electronics to stop us sliding around so much
- The Internet (imagine how isolated you’d feel now without it?)
- Multi-channel TV to keep us sane
- The Wii, to keep us fit
And now I shall go back to work, counting my lucky stars…
