Ice forms on the cables that carry the power for the trains. The ice causes the pickup on the locomotive to bounce off the cable making bright sparks and loud cracking noises.
A soap bubble blown by a happy child. It landed and froze in the morning sunshine.
I picked our first tomato two days ago. We never had ripe tomatoes this early in Hallingdal and here are plenty more to come. We also have potato plants, some carrots, onions, kale and pumpkins that have survived the hot and dry summer.
Despite having an irrigation system none of our beans and peas have survived though so we have to upgrade the hose pipes to the “paddock” before next growing season
I ate the tomato today and it was delicious!
…we bought Svenseid station. How time flies.
Well so far so good, we survived our first winter here, a winter with unusually large amounts of snow and the house kept us warm and dry.
Here’s to the next year.
To all a content 2018 with many good nights sleep.
