Remembering the winter of 1984

What this article doesn't state is that the Bridge of Orchy Hotel got completely snowed in, they were well stocked with supplies, toilet rolls, food, all the essentials, but even so, they ran out of Guinness.
A Police Range Rover parked outside was so heavily snowed in there was snow underneath it's bonnet packed around the engine.
If you're ever in the Highlands of Scotland and stay at the Bridge of Orchy hotel, they have a photograph.

That, was a lot of snow and we really don't see anything like it these days.

We still get plenty of snow here on Long Island. In 2018 we got 25 inches in March and April alone. 1995 into 96 was the worst , we had over 90 inches,16 of it in April. ⛄️

Yeah but this was like tens of feet of snow. Enough snow to block railways and derail trains trying to plough through. Enough snow to completely engulf a Range Rover, enough to cut off civilisation.

We just don't see drifts like this anymore.
