26th Jan 1945: bitter cold, ice... yet more flying bombs
26 Fri. Very severe frost, 11 degs. below freezing at midday; dull, rather foggy. Roads and footpaths are like a skating rink. To butchers, grocers, cold meat shop, bakers and paper and sweets shop in morning. On foot to Merton in afternoon to buy fish. Loud rocket at 10.40 a.m. The rocket at 8.40 yesterday fell at Kensington. To Aunt Liza’s in afternoon.
Note: 11 degrees below freezing = 21 degrees Fahrenheit = minus 6.111 Centigrade, so yes, VERY cold.
