Klæbu ...

... or a nice place 15 min from Trondheim. Nice weather, fresh snow: ... and tricky roads: But we sadly had to stay indoors because of some badminton issues ... We at least explored a new way back to Trondheim: Worth it!

Wild snow

6 hours snowing, 10h raining, 36 hours snowing (and it is maybe not even finished), that was not so bad actually :-) A rough estimation would give about 40 - 50 cm in our garden. And that was confirmed by the 15 min this morning + 15 min this evening spent shoveling to get clear carpad & stairs. In the meantime, Trondheim was on fire: Orange clouds ... almost as beautiful as green northern lights :-) Who has ever said that Norway was dark?

Tomorrow will be a massive mess ...

Weather forecast on the radio this morning: "little storm this afternoon, full storm tonight, little storm tomorrow morning". In a nutshell: snow, then rain, then cold ... Not good, neither for skiing, nor for driving :-( Let's hope the forecast is wrong!

Kyvatnet

On a lake, in the middle of Norwegian winter, what would you do? We were thinking of just walking, but this happened to be exhausting: Kids, (and not only), were skating : ... or playing hockey: If you are wondering, yes, skiing was of course also possible: Though, among so many activities, diving was not yet advised: Plenty of things to do here :-)

Swedish skidag

Departure 6 am ... hard fight ... Sailing among stars for 3 hours, and eventually reaching the swedish sun...rise. Sunny skiday, but strong contrasts : -18°c below inversion, -11°c at the inversion limit, +1°c above ... We tried to stick to the top, but downhill was obviously not the sport to prefer :-) Few pictures because of dead fingers, but we couldn't resist to the nice view of åre lake, from the 950m drop we enjoyed (a lot) :-) First of the season, but not last! PS: 'was also a shopping day by the... [Lire la suite]

Global warming

Yeps. It has been only -15° this week-end. Not enough to get rid of the snow, still. We'll have to deal with it ;-) Apart from that, Trondheim was still frozen: ... and sunny: Quite an exotic winter then ...

Litt kald

For those who are wondering, yes, it's cold as well in Norway. copyright adressa.no This morning was about -23°c, our personal record so far ;-) Today was reported the coldest day in January in Trondheim for 50 years, but it is still pretty mild compared to Røros (3h driving south to Trondheim) and its -41°c today. average line = -20°c Good thing is that we still have time to enjoy fresh air :-)
