A Google image search brings up two uses of that picture where 1982 is mentioned, but they could be from the same opinion source, of course.

Sorry :$ It just looked  like the big snow of Feb 1982 which I remember well. It started at 8:45pm on a Thursday night, by Friday evening most major national N routes were impassable.  It practically shut the entire country down for a week.  I seem to remember a BBC presenter on the 6 O'Clock news pointing to the easterly driven trough on a weather map over northern France joking "don't worry, this is not coming our way".  Strong easterlies combined with temps below -15 caused massive snow drifts and most home heating oil froze, combined with power cuts it was the biggest freeze since 1962!!! :) Roundwood was cut off for three weeks and the army air corps used helos to deliver food to farm animals.  Luckily nobody died.  There as an amazing 'blitz' like spirit as families took in and welcomed strangers who had to abandon cars all over the countries roads.  The N11 was blocked for 5 days.
