I always have a big store cupboard in the winter not for any other reason than icy pavemen ts. I can cope with snow but my pavement isn't gritted so I can't get to the main road which is gritted. I was a student in the early 70s and remember not having gas or electric. Freezing cold in Aberdeen and walking up to Rosemount to get a gallon of parrafin. A tilly lamp to fill as well.Didn't do my figure any harm but was so cold .
