The morning of Friday 13th January at the tram stop. Some snow here.
I got so pessimistic about everything that I was shocked about trams actually running with no delays. Really.
UK doesn’t get that much snow so it takes little to cause disruptions.
Just yesterday I saw a page I follow on Facebook dedicated to old pictures of Bratislava, my home town, posting about the record snowfall of 1987–thirty years ago. I believe most of Europe suffered this extreme cold spell. I was only six then but remember bits of it. There were heaps of snow as tall as me and my mum had to walk to her workplace because the public transport wasn’t running. The great “snow calamity”, as we called it in former Czechoslovakia, was still talked about many years afterwards. People laugh when they reminisce about those days, but I’m sure it wasn’t funny then!
Some pictures from that time (just ignore the text).
Make sure you keep yourselves warm, peeps!
