This is utter madness! This is my 10th Fall in Liège and I've NEVER seen anything like this, never before Christmas, and never even this much or this long during "real" winter (although I missed the 2 worst ones of the past ten years).
What am I going on about? You remember me complaining about the "slushy snow" that was raining down on the city all day Sunday? The stuff that melted all the snow in town and has stopped me from making a snowman in my back yard? Well it never occurred to me that up on campus the situation would be any different. Silly me, I forgot that the Sart Tilman - our "hill" - is about 150m above the city (Liège is only 68m above sea level). And what was rain down here was probably snow up there! So basically it snowed all day Sunday, stayed freezing Monday, snowed again a bit yesterday... and here's the result:
You think that's white? Take a look at this!
And I don't know if this is a tree or a crystalline entity...
And how can this teeny-tiny branches hold so much snow on them???
Lol! My colourful self sticks out even more in this white background!
Anyone care to guess which direction the wind was blowing from? It's pretty obvious (and weird!) when you look at the tree trunks!
I thought this tree was magnificent:
The sky today was just one big snow-filled cloud (and it started snowing right then), so you can barely make out the horizon!
They're quite a bit whiter now! ;o)
Time to get out of here and head downtown before this new snowfall paralyses the buses...
It was snowing in town too... there's snow again -albeit not much- in the garden, and more predicted for tomorrow. Perhaps I'll get my garden snowman after all? ;o)
