Helsingborg in the morning

image

This is the “next morning” view from my room and you can see the touch of snow on the ground.

Helsingborg

image

Well my train arrived here on this dark cold night and I trudged up the road to the hotel, with my shoes squeaking and cracking on the pavement - evidence that it had snowed earlier today.

This is the night-time view from my room and it’s about the best I have seen of this Swedish city so far. Across the sound lies the Danish sister city of Helsingar. The two cities are connected by 125 ferries every day and the journey takes a mere 20 minutes. Helsingar is known in English, through the play Hamlet by William Shakespeare, as Elsinore. Unfortunately I probably won’t have time to take the ferry trip this time. But talking of Denmark, and I might have mentioned this before, there are more pigs in the country than people.

The White Stuff

image


I thought I would post a comparative photo of Chertsey in the aftermath of the the snow.

Today it’s all slowly melting and there are only patches here and there: which is still unusual for this spot. Here’s what you can compare today’s scene to: no snow (29 August 2008).

Signs of Green Shoots Again

image


No, nothing to do with the economy - everything to do with melting snow.

See previous entries Flurry of Snow and Flurry of Snow Revisited for comparative photographs.

There’s probably no bus (or train)

image

At least not today anyway.  Image via the bus slogan generator (hat tip: Steve, background:atheist bus campaign).

To compare with yesterday’s flurry.

Sevenoaks to Oxted in the Snow



A slideshow of my drive this evening. Everyone was driving like old people and yet I passed about four or five accidents on the way. It’s been snowing on and off the whole day but it looks like the council didn’t get it together to get enough gritters out on the road. Or perhaps it was the wrong kind of snow.

Snow in Sevenoaks

image


I’m here for supper with my youngest, and enjoying the view over the rooftops from the restaurant.
