A nation obsessed with weather

"Pray don't talk to me about the weather, Mr. Worthing. Whenever people talk to me about the weather, I always feel quite certain that they mean something else."

What with the recent chilly snap, the topic of snow seems have been almost the sole topic of conversation of late. This rather interesting article on just how jolly cold it got in 1947, and the consequences of such a chill, then, is bound to go down rather well. From The Times.
