Bygone Days


The "Big Freeze" of 1947.

Down off the hill, you can start to see the realities of such a long-lasting fall of deep snow. Even out here, the snow is deeply pierced with footsteps, the adults gingerly footing their way near the meadow's edge arms akimbo to keep their very precarious balance.

In the distance - flat levelled snow and only one snow-drift to be seen straddling the boundary wall. A bit of care and a slower pace - No big deal ...
