A picture of Marksumaja (I teach in the building with the mural) as seen
from my flat in mid-November.
The first snow was in mid-November, just before I left for my Finnish
trip. Here you can see the fluffy flakes of snow coming down by the
Suudlevaad statue in Raekoja plats.
When I returned on 27 Nov from Finland, the lights were up. This is an
evening picture of Marksumaja (again from my window) on 28 November. The
city has lots of lights, including many in blue and white (national
Looking away from the 'kissing students' fountain on the same day as the
picture above. You can barely make out the snow falling.
Overnight on 2 Dec we got a serious snow and I woke up to a completely
white world. This is Raekoja plats but with an enormous Christmas tree
and lights strung up across the square.
Same place (as at left) except further down the square looking back
towards the Town Hall. The hazy area in the center is from a large fire
some people were tending while working in the center. On this day, it
did not get above 0 C, and mostly hovered around -5 C.
