In our day.....

The kids were talking about snow earlier in the car and we had one of those moments where we sounded like Grandpa from the Simpsons. There were phrases like..."in our day"....."the big snow of 1982"...."we had to queue for hours outside Hughes dairies"....

Jayzus I feel old after that.....


  1. Greatest video posted here ever Ash. I was young enough when that happened but it was like the whole world had come to a standstill. You sometimes wonder if it was as bad as you remember, obviously it was.

  2. I have such fond memories of it! Lots of time off school and climbing on top of cars and walls!

  3. I only half remember it. I remember 91 more, that was great.

  4. Arr, the big snow. Bes time ever. my husband was seriously snowed in in bray - they brought brea in a helicopter, and he was the only one of his friends not to get on the news!!

    I remember my sister waking me up, and asking if it was time for school, she memorably replied, no, you don't have to go to school today, it's snowed! Magic.

    My father also remembers being stuck in town (was it 91? Must have been) for work, and walking round the green and rafton street in silent whitness.
