"Oh what a night !
Late December back in '63..."
Of course Frankie Vallie wasn't referring to the main event: I was born then...
He wasn't referring to the inclement winter weather either.
The winter of 1963/4 was the coldest and winteriest ever!Now this has been celebrated in a new book written by Ian McCaskill and Paul Hudson, and with a nice tagline "when winters really were winters". It looks at the winters of 1947, 1963 and 1979, which were particularly hard winters. Some great images and details. This book would make a perfect gift for the Geographer in your life. Hint ! A good SCOTSMAN interview here.
