    Thanks for that Shiney. So many folk laugh and say,'Pull the other one' when I mention snow still being around in May.

    There was also a bad winter in 1946. The school was just down the hill. Us kids would grab anything, including wire milk crates and slide down the hill. Sadly a shrt way down on the left was another road. This was also part of a hill. Several horse drawn milk carts went over and the horses had to be put down. Many memories return of those days, including the thick pea soupers....fogs.

      Hello yes I remember 1963 really well the river Medway frozen over and could be walked across,as I was working on the ship pictured below at Strood pier "The Finmaster" frozen bales of wood pulp using the ships steam winches which at least kept us warm a little:smile:
