On both Radio Cymru and Radio Wales, people have been recounting their experiences of previous hard winters.
1980s, 1960s, 1947, 1933, 1924....
Every one was remembered for being a Long Haul.
Valuable memories not only to be caught and recorded, but also to be learned from....being "old fashioned" has its merits. Having a storecupboard, an alternative source of heating and cooking , a Flashlamp by the door for walking at night or powercuts.
All little easy things that make sense but that seem to have been forgotten
