Rime in Leeds

On Tuesday morning I awoke early in the morning to find the ground, trees and cars ouside totally covered with rime. Given that this is not a common weather phenomenon and created a beautiful spectacle I decided to take some pictures. Some of them came out quite nicely. I carried my camera with me to campus later in the day and took a few more pictures.

If you are wondering what “Rime” is then I found a Wikipedia page offering a good explanation with some pictures bearing a resemblance to my own!

    Rime does look like snow though so you can be forgiven for thinking that 😉

    No, I’m right, it was snow! It was cold and white and it fell from the sky!

    We had it here too in York, it was amazing, pity my camera was broke. Didn’t know it was called Rime though. As for it not being snow, I guess you wont believe it until you see it. It’s basically frozen mist.

    It wasn’t really that in Leeds, it just looked a lot like snow. As I said, it was cold and white and flakey and fell from the sky.
