Icy Road on Norfolk Street



After taking the photo of the big house on Kent Street, I walked down to the end of the roadway as I heard some brakes or slipping and sliding in the bad weather. As I stepped into the deep snow (way over the tops of my high boots) and leaned over the edge of the roadway and looked down onto Norfolk Street below me, the icy surface was clearly visible and the cars were just creeping along and sliding down the hill under the main railway line.

I was happy to get home!

This photo is looking sort of south towards McDonalds and then on down toward the University of Guelph away off in the distance. Some U of G photos will be forthcoming later on in the good weather!

Fortunately most over here use studded tyres but there is always one day at the beginning of winter when most people still haven't switched and then there's a lot of creeping and sliding in Stockholm as well. God jul (or Merry Christmas) by the way.

looks nasty - it has slightly warmed up here and now we just have horribly cold rain - thankfully I did a bit of last-minute shopping this morning and got back before it set in - won't be venturing outside again to Thursday!

It looks cold, dull, dreary and slippery. In this weather it's always lovely to be indoors, watch television and drink hot coffee. Is that what you ended up doing?
