Snow Circles

February 27, 2012

A while ago on TOTD we featured the strange phenomenon that is crop circles. Today we bring you snow circles – stunning creations which are a little less enigmatic as we know who created them, Simon Beck.

Simon spends time trudging about in the snow to create these truly cool works of art. Check them out here

Snowtime

December 18, 2009

Portsmouth has received its first snowfall of the season, so this site seems particulalry appropriate for today’s posting. Members of a web design and development company take it in turns to sit at a desk and have artificial snow blown over them by a machine controlled by you, apparently.

Snow and Ice… Sculptures

February 1, 2009

According to the chaps at the Met Office, we’re going to get some snow this weekend…

As with snow, so with ice – and if we get enough of┬áthe stuff, who knows? We could all get out our chisels and replicate some of the stunning ice sculptures below.

Dreaming of a White Christmas?

December 6, 2008

If you’re dreaming of a white Christmas and you live in Portsmouth, don’t hold your breath. There might have been frost on the cars this morning but out of all the 126 postcode areas in the UK, Labrokes have given Portsmouth long odds of 5-1 for snow on the Big Day.

Never mind.

To cheer yourselves up, here are some pretty pictures of snowflakes to look at instead.
