On this day

in 1963, Britain had its first frost free night since December 22nd of the previous year.

I vaguely remember it; birds freezing to power lines is one image, as are chapped thighs as we wore shorts at school and continued to play sports and go sledging. We're a hardy (foolish?) bunch us Yorkies.

PS I have added a couple of links in the sidebar which I have started using as reference for on this day
