    I wondered how long it would be before the Dennis the Menace storm would be nicknamed - the Daily Star was one of the first to pick up on that one!
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    Probably because we are not used to snow in this country as other countries are - the fact that most children live within the catchment area of their school makes it easy to get there even in snowy weather as they probably only live a few streets away. On the other hand, teachers probably live several miles out and so therefore it would be a bit more of a challenge to get to the school, and don't forget that they are the main people who keeps a school functioning. Caretakers and Site Managers often live on the premises, and so it wouldn't be a problem to get there and investigate any burst water pipes or no power.

    I was woken up by flash of lightning and a few rumbles of thunder and heavy downpours at 4am

    I didn't hear lightning, and I don't think that I would have been fully asleep at that time.

    There was a bit of sun coming out yesterday - unbelievable that only 48 hours before it was snowing.
