For older readers, the weapon of choice in times like these was always a plastic ‘Richardsons 20:10:10’ fertiliser bag, with some straw or hay in the bottom of the bag.  Low-tech – but it was easier to carry back up a hill than a so-called proper sleigh, and it generally would slide well on surfaces where a conventional sleigh would bog down.

While many may be glad to see the back of snow, lots of kids of all ages may have welcomed an unexpected day off work or college.  Some useful winter driving tips here.
