First snow of Winter
Actually it's still Autumn. albiet the last day of meteorological Autumn.
Winter arrived ahead of schedule today as Arctic air pummeled down along the the North Sea coast, bringing blizzard conditions.
This was the scene this morning on Ryhope Road, one of the mains routes into the city of Sunderland.
And just in case anyone is wondering, this is not 'fake snow' added on in post processing. It was coming down really thick and fast. I was crouched down, attempting to keep the snow off my lens under a golfing brolly!
