3rd-4th March 1946: winter weather

3 Sun. Very cold; quite a heavy fall of snow greeted us this morning, dull day becoming very gloomy and calm: a slight thaw midday lessened the quantity of snow. An uneventful day save for the children calling on their way to Sunday School. A little auburn-haired girl named Margaret who stays week-ends at Mr Morris’s next door came to-day.

4 Mon. Morning frost, half-dark all day. Snow till afternoon then it turned to rain with a slight thaw. In morning splashed my way on my bike through thick slushy snow to take something to Mrs. Collis and to buy something locally. In afternoon to Merton cats meat shop – a dreadful journey in foul weather
