The snow was still there this morning but today’s rain is making it disappear

First frost

Frosty the Oil Lamp

The climate in this bit of Telemark is a lot milder than in Hallingdal. Yesterday we had our first frost (-2’c) which is about a month later that I remember first frosts in Gol. The mornings are now noticeably colder but when the sun shines in the afternoon it feels like late August.

We will see what the winter brings…

Det snør, det snør (tiddeli bom!)

Snow in the centre of Gol

It was supposed to fall as rain. It is nice to see even though the snow will probably be gone tomorrow.

“Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow…”

It is snowing like mad and it’s not as if we can do much about it. If King Canute had tried to stop the snow from doing its thing, instead of the sea, he would have ended up looking like a very large meringue. I’ve been out twice this evening moving snow around. Here I am doing my Banksy impersonation whilst clearing snow off the roof of the bike shed.

We'll be doing more of this in the next couple of days...

It looks like it will be difficult to use the bike trailer to take Odd Egill to barnehage tomorrow. So the pulk has been taken out of storage readied for use.
