So the temperature up in Leeds has dropped somewhats, and along with me having to do a complete factory reset on my laptop, I’ve now had to faff about in fairly deep snow if I want to go outside. Those of you who follow me on facebook will have already seen the little video I whacked on there from my webcam, but on my way about town and through Hyde Park today I took a few pictures for all to see. Now this is how many people would like to see Christmas.
The graveyard at university really reminds me of A Christmas Carol.
The view from my bedroom. Last night this poor lamp post was hit by a car and a rubbish collection truck.
The road towards Leeds city centre looks a bit bleak.
Glad I wasn’t under any trees when they shed their loads.
Hyde Park was the deepest snow area I walked through, with areas of virgin snow coming to just a few inches under my knee caps.
In yonder distance yee can see, a humble snowman who hath yet to be.
These guys were making an igloo. On my way back it was really impressive, but I didn’t want to take my camera out as the snow was coming down heavy again.
I shall name him … (looks around room to found a random and somewhat obscure name) … Leopold.
This may look like a spherical sculture covered with snow, but I can tell you this … I don’t remember it being there a couple of days ago (recent … ish … google maps pic), and there was a mysterious looking trail of missing snow, grass and mud leading to it from the park.
Evergreen trees … the laziest of all.
This little house and garden area really go well with a snowy environment.
