Magical Snow in 1962/63

Kindly received by e-mail:

The extreme weather I remember was in, I think, 1962. I was living in Pembrokeshire, on the coast where we rarely had snow that stuck. But this particular Winter  I woke to find everything covered in depths of snow. Our house was situated on a back lane in the village and the snow was level with the hedgerows. It has been funnelled in with the wind. I remember walking or rather scrambling to the Post office sinking up to my shoulders in snow. It was magical…No school for a week and our lane wasn’t passable for vehicles for quite a few weeks after that.
