My Mum often said that there was snow on her birthday (mid April) more often than Christmas Day. It's the swing of 10 degrees from one day to the next which is a bit disorientating.

PH: Having to choose a replacement for a long lasting household item. Just recently both my hair dryer & iron have died, after some 40 years service. Hard to get items with just basic functions these days.

I don't remember cricket being stopped by snow in August, but I do remember it in June 1975.
Mind you it was a match in Buxton, up in the hills, where you are always advised to add a vest and take an extra jumper, whatever time of year you go.
Lovely town though.
