snow joke in nottingham




i love the building in the center.


still with the heeled boots, and thinking umbrellas protect from the snow ;)














the invisible man's house...


a snow flap...


the sled riding hill - with a cleared path in the middle in order to safely walk back up the hill!






cyclists are hardcore!








my little snowman in front of ye olde trip to jerusalem - 1189 AD.


when i walked passed a couple hours later, someone had added and very happy little snowman friend!

I recently heard that the term "sled riding" is unique to Cincinnati becasue it is the English translation of the German term.

Apparently, everyone else calls it "sledding".

i knew "sled riding" was a regional term. i found this out as a teenager when i silenced a shocked crowd of my peers from around the midwest who exclaimed they had never heard anyone use such an "old-fashioned" term for sledding.

i hadnt heard the german language connection though - that's interesting! thanks!
