    Yeah and don't forget the barefoot 10km walk through 2m of snow at -30C to school, uphill *both* ways, on the days we were lucky enough to get off from the mill and were allowed to go to school!

    Heck, even our professional football (Yes soccer!) team early on learned to play in the snow. In their season opening home game of their very first season here (Played in an open stadium.) they played in -5C temps with a -15C wind chill and a snowstorm that dropped 15cm of the white stuff.

    Some observations and not very useful tips,

    Two polystyrene cups of hot chocolate poured over the heavily frosted screen of an Orange VW Beetle - in a -25C wind chill blizzard whilst taking a break and trying to restore some feeling in the fingertips after driving through 3m high cleared snow drifts, in an attempt to improve the 1cm wide viewing slit in the windscreen which occurred partly as a result of the heat exchangers and washer bottle packing in and the wipers just making it worse, does nothing but create chocolate ice coated glass – rock hard.
    So get two more hot chocolates from the automatic machine in the servo – one to help soften the frozen choc ice as you attempt to scrape it off the windscreen and the other to drink to help stave off the onset of hypothermia.
    Meanwhile – Very minimal comfort can be taken watching truck drivers, who had also stopped at the same spot for a rest break, lighting fires under their diesel fuel tanks because the fuel had frozen. Could not wait to get outta there!
    Earlier on the same day the snow had drifted completely over the front of my Aunties two storey terraced housed (little drifting at the back) covering the roof and drifting through any gaps into the loft space so much that the roof was at risk of collapse, spent 2 freezing hours clearing the loft then most of the roof.
    It was a very memorable day.
    BTW the auto vending machine only had hot chocolate working and it was running off a generator. Everything else was closed down.
