When I say freezing, I mean literally






The weather is ridiculous here, it has been for a few weeks now. The first snow is gone, yet the frost stays. I don't remember a December that was colder than this one around here; the usual day temperature is around -5°C and we really mean it when it is night time and Dean Martin is singing "the weather outside is frightful". Would I enjoy the snow more than the solid layers of ice around? I think so.

After dark

Night time
Night time
Night time

I like London streets when they are empty and quiet, but there is also something slightly gloomy or melancholic about London nights. Still, the city looks equally lovely when the street lamps are lit with that yellow light and old buildings look like scenes from a nice book.
