I'm another who wasn't born until the following summer (I expect there are quite a few of us!), but I found it fascinating watching, if a bit harrowing at times (the idea of people suffocating in their cars while stuck in snowdrifts etc). It's hard to imagine even the sea freezing over.
I noticed too how the complaints after the event sounded just the same as they do today! As for having to wait three weeks sometimes for the rubbish to be collected, I thought that was normal
