The startling way in which winters have changed in my lifetime alone is pronounced. I'm 30 now but when I was a child I remember winters with snow knee deep and temperatures so cold that I'd cry with the cold. The ground would freeze solid and our toes thus in turn. Frosty mornings were the norm over winter, not a rarity. Pavements were treacherous on the walk to school with ice and breath billowed with every exhalation.
Times have changed. Will winters of the past get left behind as a mere figment of memory?
