Overview

You can ask anyone born before, or around, 1975 if they remember the snow in the early 1980s, and they will most likely reply 'yes.' Depending on their age at the time, you will hear tales of schoolchildren who were happy that school was closed and they could play with their friends outside, and adults will tell you stories of buried cars, impassable roads, and how the community came together to dig out shop fronts, and help push-start cars.
