I remember that winter all too well. But it was the first winter I had in the UK (other than when too young to remember) so had no idea it was exceptional.

I was on the west coast of Scotland and, despite knowing how bad it was just a tiny bit inland, we had very little snow. At Christmas, we went to Sunderland and Newcastle-upon-Tyne, and by golly it was cold with severe snow and ice.
