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.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.
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.Yes, but I would far rather that land be moving in early January than the middle of February.

i was only 6 but remember the drifts up the road here being able to walk from the field 1 side of the road to the other about 10ft over the roadwho here remembers this, I was too small to remember it properly, any interesting tales from the big snow
yep remember it.remember having to go back for my weekly holidays to crumlin hospital in my uncle's beetle.he had to stop several times to clear the snow from between the wheels and the wheel arches.who here remembers this, I was too small to remember it properly, any interesting tales from the big snow
,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"There was a big snow in 1947 too. I don't remember it
