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…
