You mean like the special leaves that have the same effect?

'ckinell ... saw snow in Limassol (1980's) ... didn't affect trains (as there weren't any) or any other form of transport ... obviously not special enoughmeiktilaman said:
1976 was the year, bit more than 30 below, especially with windchill - Soltau-Luneberg - Rocks were dug in and last to be given "endex"oldbloke said:We had an exercise called off in Germany. 1976 I think? Think it was something like 30 below and geezers were freezing at the controls of their 432's and it was considered too dangerous. How them Stalingrad veterans laughed!
We are bloody soft here now though. Some of us remember Winter 1963. Every barsteward thing froze and we had snow, snow and more snow. Outside toilets, one coal fire, the only double glazing was in national health glasses. Old army great coats for duvet covers.
Don't suppose many on here remember the great coat? They were great (Hmmm?) but bloody heavy and I hated sewing the buttons on.
Trouble with this country now is that we are just not used to heavy snow any more. That and most councils and companies are sh1te and couldn't organise a p1ss up in a brewery. Nowt new there then?
