The nice thing about living 5 minutes away from Work is the fact that you dont have to travel and risk getting stuck in snowy weather.
I decided to take my camera to work with me and took photos along the way. It was very slippery so i had to be careful aswell.
Starting off, Glenway in the Snow, its evident that people have set off for work already and probably stuck in a jam somewhere.
Whose tracks are these? iam guessing these look like domestic dog tracks when walkies with their owners.
A quick look back at my house, i rubbed out the car regs to protect their identity.
Lots of snow on the base of this tree.
It was dark just before 8am so the photos are heavily edited to get a reasonable picture.
Walking round the corner and i turned round and looked back and took a photo.
Around the corner.
Winter flowering shrub looks nice and yellow with the snow.
The University border wall, the same type of wall that surrounds Hotham Park.
Here we are, the canteen is right across.
Student crop circle! looks like they have been having fun in the early hours in the car park.
Mordington House just visible in the Dawn darkness, this is a Georgian building which features in the history of Bognor Regis.
The Dome is where the King who was famous for saying *B...... Bognor!* before dying! Its also interesting to know what would have happened if he had survived, maybe we would have been as big as Brighton but now its a part of Chichester University.
Its VERY deep snow here, wondering why i took the shortcut over the grass....
The footprints in front of me lead all the way to the canteen!
Here we are! down the path and its just visible.
I helped serve the students their breakfast, because its the last day of term, many were worried about getting home in this weather, especially as the canteen closes today for the Christmas period.
Mid morning, we all had a Mince pie and cup of tea.
At 12pm i wished everyone a very happy Christmas and started to make my way back home again taking photos as i went.
Cafe next door, its also a bar for the students in the evening.
Nice wintry scene, the building on the left is the 3rd Geogian Mansion called St Michaels.
I took a photo of me infront of the Science block, this building will be demolished next year as the Campus expands and relocates buildings. The Dome is going to be refurblished and was on the Bognor Observer for £30 Million! Guess grade 2 listed Georgian Mansions cost a lot to maintain!
Walking back past The Dome i see the Rose Bed still in bloom!
Its nice to see Roses in bloom in the middle of Winter i guess but i know from my Horticulture course i did when i was at college, that Roses should be cut down to almost the stem in the Autumn. Its not my part to say so i leave it up to the groundsman.
Its starting to melt a little.
It was very slushy and slippery on the roads leading to home, i took a few more photos.
Glenway and the snow.
My front garden shrubs covered with snow.
Hope you enjoyed that folks as much as i did, its interesting how an ordinary 5 minute walk can transform into a beautiful landscape when it snows.
The next post will be Benjie in the Snow, he loved it.
