Hvor ble det av våren?

Forleden satt jeg på terrassen i 12 grader pluss, ikke et snøkorn å se i noen retning og de første krokusene hadde for lengst vinket til den varme vårsolen, men – da jeg våknet i morges fant jeg meg selv i et helt annet land: ‘Vinter-Norge’! Termometeret viste 2-3 minusgrader, tett snøfokk og 40 cm med nysnø!  Og fortsatt snør det tett! Det skal det visst fortsette med frem til i kveld en gang . . .
Bildene er med hensikt tatt med lukker 1/80 sek. Hvis dere klikker dem opp i ‘full-format’, så kan dere ved selvsyn få et inntrykk av snøværet!

Two days ago I was enjoying the spring on my terrace. Temperatures were a solid 12 degrees plus, not a grain of snow to be seen in any direction, and the crocus had been winking at the warm spring sun for days on end! But waking up this morning, I woke to a different country: Winter-Norway!  Heavy snow and a good 20 inches had established itself on my terrace! And it’s still snowing and will supposedly continue untill late evening…!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASnøhaugene til høyre i bildet kan være 60-70 cm høye, og inntil i går kveld var her ikke et eneste snøkorn!

The snowdrifts to the right are estimated to be 24-28 inches high, and untill last night there were absolutely not the faintest grain of snow here!
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASnøen i veibanen har kommet etter kl 07 i morges. Da ble veien måkt!
The snow in the road itself has fallen after 7.00 am this morning. Then the road was cleared for snow!

    Sure does, David, but all it means is that we’ll probably have to wait for another week?
    And I’ll try to calm down ‘the Animal’

  2. Sorry I was bragging about our arrival of spring….your winter still has a sting in its tail
