Sir: Perhaps I might fine-tune the definition of "pitching" supplied by Miriam Andrews (letter, 24 March). Precipitation of snow in Bristol is only considered to be pitching if it does not melt when it reaches the ground - otherwise a snowfall is deemed to be not pitching ... and it is safe to put on your daps and dap down to the local shop.
