We are very lucky where we live, we are I am told in one of the highest parts of Brum.
When I lived in the flats just up the road (now demolished) you could see over Birmingham Airport.

I remember the 63 winter, walking to school almost crying because our feet were so cold. The school was even colder. If it happened today they would shut the school.
