The winter months have finally passed and spring is around the corner.
You might have thought that this past winter has been chilly - with a fair bit of snow - but it hardly compared to the winter people experienced 50 years ago.
The winter of 1962/63 was the coldest of the last century - snow arrived on Boxing Day and stayed until March.
The average temperature for the whole three months from December to February stayed below freezing for the whole time and dipped as low as -18 degrees.
