      I did spend a couple o' nights out in the open but I got so bloody nithered I couldn't sleep. I daren't sleep any road, 'cause it were that bloody cold...

      Talk About Nithered! In several severe winters - 1739, 1880, 1963 - the Hardraw waterfall at Hawes had become a giant icicle, just under 100 feet long.

      I'm fair nithered, sat sittin' here in this bloody draught.
