Some photos from Durham on New Years Day 2020

After a late night of revelling, we decided it would be a good idea to go for a walk and get some fresh air. The obvious choice was to head down across the Silver Link Bridge and on into Pelaw Wood, then down to the river and into the City.

It was a nice, crisp winters day, with plenty of sunshine. Durham looked good and everyone seemed in good spirits. We ended up in the Food Pit drinking Americano Coffee. Much needed.

Happy New Year to everyone!

First real snow of winter 2019-20

The northern part of the county saw it’s first real snow of the winter on 12th December. It was confined to high levels, but gave a good covering in the high Pennines. Here’s a photo from twitter from the top of Killhope.

More photos from a friend of mine Barry Wilkinson who went skiing in Weardale.

Amazing sunrise from Wharton Park 8th December 2019

Some amazing shots this morning of the sunrise from Wharton Park, with Durham Cathedral silhouetted against the fiery skyline. The day soon turned into a blustery one with showers and gusty westerly winds.

Some great photos of the severe December 2010 weather

Some nine years ago, we were in the grip of one of the most severe spells of weather to occur in the month of December for over 100 years. Around Durham, snowfall was very deep. Here’s a selection of photos taken by Gary Tidbury of the conditions around Framwellgate Moor in Durham.

Even the Bin Wagon got stuck

A great example of an Ice Spike

A good mate of mine just posted these extraordinary photos on Facebook of an ‘Ice Spike’.

“This morning I had never heard of an ice spike and if I had ever seen one, would have had no idea what it was and shrugged it off as something strange. A post on another site had a photo of one happening in the great outdoors of Northumberland along with an explanation of the strange event. That reminded me that yesterday, in my small beaker used for inaccurate assumptions of rainfall measures, I had noticed a frozen stick shape protruding above the top. It must have been 6-8 cm long. I shrugged it off, wrongly presuming that by chance (a million to one ?) an icicle had fallen from the roof some 4 feet away and several higher and landed, unbroken in the beaker !?! On reading said post, I went outside to find this …”
