25th Feb 1948: explosion shook windows
25 Wed. Very cold after night frost but it thawed quite rapidly in the sunshine: there is still much snow about and most of the garden is still covered. Heard an explosion which shook the windows in the morning; it was an acetylene explosion at Leatherhead. Donald called. The Surrey Bedding Co. returned a mattress re-made as new: a splendid job. To see Aunt Liza, she gave me an “All Dry” combined H.T. and L.T. battery that Uncle Joe had given him.
