Brass monkeys!

(Dedicated to Ewa)

If I told you it had been brass monkeys lately, what would I be saying?

Well, in fact, I'd be talking about the weather and saying it's very cold!

Just to convince my Polish friends that Britain has bad weather too, here is part of a documentary about one of Britain's worst winters on record - 1947

Some of the people in the film have strong, north eastern accents; difficult even for other natives to follow but stick with it - it's interesting!
