26th-27th Feb 1946:

26 Tues. Very cold, becoming frosty at night. Very dismal; day commencing with a downpour of rain which gradually changed to sleet then to snow which continued all day and at night there was 1½ ins. with snow still falling. To the local butchers and fish shop. Doris called to say Gwennie was in bed and had a cough.

27 Wed. Very cold: two inches of frozen crunchy snow. The day was clear & some sunshine which caused a partial thaw but freezing hard again at night. Got the groceries locally and some fish at Morden. Went to see Gwennie who was up for a short while and helped her paint some texts in a book while she amused herself before the fire.
