The Big Snow. 

In the second week of January 1987 there was exceptionally cold air over the near continent, and a depression centred on the English Channel brought strong easterly winds to the whole country. There was heavy snowfall all along the east coast, up to 20 inches, but the west largely escaped this - except that the wind was able to funnel through the Forth - Clyde Valley, and on the morning of Monday 12th it dumped the heaviest fall of snow that I can remember in Glasgow. The city was effectively paralysed, even the motorways beyond saving, and not much mail (or anything else) moved that day.
