As a kid who was plagued by them every cold spell I wonder if they are still around or has climate change done away with them?

Me too. Coal fires - heat only reached my dad who sat with his feet on the oven hob. Wellies were never enough to keep our feet warm. Winters were real winters. No central heating or fitted carpets just lino and rugs on top of concrete floors. Not so much climate change but better standard of living perhaps though no doubt climate change occured due to things improving.

I read somewhere that being under weight was one cause…perhaps our diet was deficient although I also read that our wartime and post wartime diets were “heathy”.
