Was out earlier milking. Came back into the house to drop kids to school, went out to defrost car with my runners on instead of my wellies, did an ice skating maneuver down to the car.

At half seven this morning the cars and roofs of buildings had a dust of snow and it was bitterly cold. By 9 it was spilling rain and by half 9 it was scuttery snow. At half 10 the place was white with snow and very cold but by half 11 it was back to the rain and got a lot milder. Land is moving now.

Yes, but I would far rather that land be moving in early January than the middle of February. Let it rain away for another fortnight if needs be.

Agreed. It's just today was about as bad a day as I've seen in a good while and it's been a long time since water was flowing around like it was this morning.

Don't remember it, but my father often talks about it. one of their milk delivery drivers (worked in a co-op) got stranded and he borrowed a county off a local haulier/farmer/contractor and went on a mission to collect him.

I think the guy had rang from a pub though and wasn't overly bothered about going home by the time my dad arrived.

There was a big snow in 1947 too. I don't remember it
,47 scared a lot of people, my parents use to talk about it, it snowed late in the spring and stayed way too long. My father talked about ploughing for Dev:d compulsory wheat in May and having to leave parts of the fields because of the snow drifts still not being gone near the hedges. A lot of Irish people worried in 47 that it was going to be a repeat of "Black '47"
