We’ve had this weather many times before

Rod Liddle in The Spectator is right in saying, “What’s strange about this weather? Nothing at all“.

Many of us will remember winters where we had snow in March, and at Easter too. One particularly vivid one for me was an Easter Hockey Festival in Scarborough, where the volume of snow was such that we were forced to play on the beach. I also think that central heating has sapped our ability to handle the cold weather, and that includes me.

Here are two pictures taken today. One showing a squirrel munching his way through a whole camellia flower, which I haven’t seen before, and another of the freezing water from a roadside puddle in Chobham.

One thought on “We’ve had this weather many times before

  1. Yes we have indeed had snow, and lots of it in March and April – March 29th 1952, 5th April 1958(Easter weekend) 14th April 1966 and 25th April 1981.
