    I remember the wnter of 61/62 - the drifts were deeper than my Pa and he was over 6' - he organised the men from the villlage to dig though the drifts with spades and shovels as the village was totally cut off, and none of the farmers had mechanical diggers in those days.  It took days before the village was accessible by the outside world!

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

    Bill, that snow is even better than what I've seen on the roads from Vancouver, through the Rockies, going to Calgary.

    Do you get the bears where you are? They are a constant worry in the Rockies!

  • Pentillie less than 50 miles north and you will find them.Are you from B.C.? I was stationed there in 1944 at Vernon,Vancouver,Gordon Head on the Island,just loved it out there.


  • England and where this snow fell are on the same parallel and if it wasnt for the ocean you would be up to you gazoo in snow.


  • That's right Bill - if we didn't have the warming waters of the gulf stream we'd be up to our necks in it as regular as downtown Moscow.  Instead we get incessant rain because of it.

    Wonderful stuff, if you can just throw on a pair of skis and go (otherwise a bit of a pain if you need to get about in it).
