King Winter

‘Kong Vinter’ har ankommet og tatt kontroll over det meste av landet. Her i lavlandet hvor vi vanligvis mottar ganske moderate snømengder,  har vi i år fått betydelig mer en vanlig.
Faktisk har vi ikke sett slike snømengder i lavlandet på hele 7 år! Og selv om norske bilister vel er mer vant til snø en ellers i Europa, så ble det kaos! Antagelig fordi man innenfor transportnæring finner en del ‘nye landsmenn’ som ikke har den samme erfaring med snø, og når de da også håndterer busser. trailere og andre større kjøretøyer, så blir veier fort blokkert.

Samtidig skaper snøen en noe spesiell stemning, og selv om jeg vel har gjort dette også ved tidligere anledninger, så tok jeg en liten spasertur med kamera gjennom det nærmeste nabolaget. Dette er bilder fra turen . . .
‘King Winter’ has finally arrived in earnest and taken control of most of our country, – also through the lowlands where we usually have very little snow, we’ve got far more than usual. Actually we haven’t seen this much snow in the lowlands since 2010!
And – even if Norwegian car owners are more used to driving on snow than the larger parts of Europe, this volume of snow have created chaos on our roads. Probably partly because withing the transport business we find a number of ‘new citizens’ not particularly familiar with snow. And since they handle large vehicles like trailers, busses and the likes, roads are quickly blocked when something happens!

On the other hand tha snow creates a special atmosphere, and even if I have done this also on other occasions, I grabbed my camera and went out for a stroll through my neighborhood. These are pictures from that stroll. Please enjoy!

Turen gikk også gjennom den lokale kirkegården –
The trip also went through the local cementary –

Legg merke til hvordan is fester seg til kvister og knopper i stadig tyngre klumper inntil kvisten rett og slett knekker . . .

Please notice how the ice fasten itself to twigs and buds, growing ever larger and heavier untilt the twig simply snaps . . .
Og idag kommer det ytterligere 30-40 cm . . .
And today another 15 inches are coming down . . .

    Dette er jo helt utrolig nydelig!! For noen flotte bilder. Skal til Fredrikstad neste uke, håper på en skikkelig vinter i Norge. Våren har kommet til oss i Norfolk, men vi har fortsatt kalde netter.

      Takk skal du ha, Dina! Her er det fortsatt plenty med snø og på vår terrasse ligger den i øyeblikket en meter høy, men- jeg tror du skal være forberedt på at det i Halden/Fredrikstad-området kan være vesentlig mindre! (Men vi har i år fått 3 ganger så mye som vanlig!)

  6. These Photos Svein and just magnificent.. I wonder why it is your skies always seem so much more blue than ours LOL.. Lovely looking scenes that are breath taking.
    We had snow all morning here that settled then it turned to rain.. Some places in the UK had floods as snow and heavy rain came off the hills.. So lucky where we are.
    Hope you are well my friend.. I have been emerging my self in my art and painting.. I posted over the weekend. But shall head back into my paints for the rest of the week..
    Sending thoughts your way my good friend.. And hope you forgive me if I have missed loads of your recent posts..

    Hugs Sue 🙂 🙂

    Gorgeous shots. Landscapes with fresh snow are so pristine. We have had more snow here in Atlanta, GA, which is unusual for this area. The city shuts down because no one knows how to drive in snow, however, the highways through Atlanta are some of the main routes for truckers. Snow and black ice create major problems in this area.

    • Seenorway says:

      Thank you, Eugenia –
      Yes,- even here where we are used to drive in such conditions, troubles are hard to avoid.
      Mainly because trailers and iother large vehiclkes are driven by people coming in frtom Southern Europe – not used to such condition, bad tyres, no chains and – problems!
      Such as totally blocked main roads!

    Snow landscape is always wonderful, thank you.

  10. Just a ‘little’ snow then!….. Enjoy the beauty of it. 10.30 Sunday and our first snow of this year (and only the 2nd of the winter) has just started. Broken our spell of sunny days for a while 🙂

    Svein, I love these beautiful snow photos! Even though beautiful to look at, I know the perils of traveling in snow. Reminds me of severe winters in Maine as a kid. I saved a few in my gallery so I can see them again. Stay safe on the road! ☃️ Christine

    Hører dere hadde for lite sne der borte så i kveld skulle det bli 30 cm påfyll! Var det bare 70 cm du hadde fra før?

    • Seenorway says:

      Ja, noe sånt! Det har jo blåst til dels kraftig i et døgn og derfor er det vanskelig å måle snødybde med noe særlig sikkerhet. Noen steder ligger det 30 cm og andre steder godt over en meter . . .
