Well it hasn't stopped raining for days and now we are threatened with more snow. I quite like to see the beautiful scenery created by snow but apart from that I don't think it has much going for it. Cold, slippery and downright miserable as far as I am concerned. proper old grouch, me.

Anyway I was sorting through some paperwork and I came across these photos. It was some years ago, probably nearer 25 years ago and longer ago than I care to remember, and it was a very bad winter. I had a temporary traffic light business at the time and we had a set of lights up on the Downs, just outside Eastbourne. These photos were published in the local paper, The Sussex Express and Herald, and I was tickled to see that they were my lights, the diesel generator still chugging away in the cold and the lights still working.

I hope that we don't see as much snow as that again this year!!!

Happy new Year Everyone
