Fake Spring!

Etter å ha sett ganske vårlige tilstander tidlig i Mars trodde jo de fleste at vi skulle få en relativt hyggelig og tidlig – og kanskje solrik vår?  Vi har jo nesten ikke hørt om annet en ‘global oppvarming’ de siste 6-8 årene?
Så da sjokkmeldingen kom: ’50 cm snø over de neste 12 timene’, så trodde jo de fleste at
meteorologene hadde tatt feil – igjen?! Men nei, denne gang hadde de truffet blinken!
After having observed much ‘spring-like’ indications in early March, most people believed that we would all be enjoying an early warm and pleasant – may be even sunny – spring?
We had hear about nothing but global warm-ups for the last 6-8 years.
So when the shocking message  came: ’20-25 inches of snow over the next 12 hours’ most of us believed the weather forcasters to have missed out – again!? But no, as i turned out – this time they’ve hit the nail on the head – exactly!
Morgenen kom og det meste av våre omgivelser var dekket av 45-50 cm våt og veldig tung snø!
The morning arrived and most of our surroundings were all covered in 20-25 inches of wet heavy snow!
Denne haugen ligger rett utenfor døra – ca 230 cm høy og massiv! Hvis du undrer deg litt over fargen, så er det fordi dette bildet ble tatt sent på dagen i ‘den blå timen’ da solen går ned og hvor det meste – også snø – kan blir litt blåviolett .

This pile of snow directly outside of our doorway is something like 8 feet high and massive! And if you may be wondering about the somewhat strange color of snow, it’s because this particular shot was made late in the evening- in what we call ‘the blue hour’ when the sun is decending under the horizon and when most anything take on a soft lilac blue coloring.
Men – luften er klar og ren og av og til kompenserer naturen all snøskuffingen med noen hyggelige minner for ettertiden – hvis du da har et camera i nærheten. Og det har man jo!
Dermed kan dere alle ta del i den hyggelige delen av denne dagen!

But the air is clean and sharp and at times nature will compensate for all the heavy shoveling of snow through the day – if you happen to have a camera near by? And that we have! Thus you may all be able to share this beautiful evening?!

  1. Beautiful fire in the sky! 🙂

  2. Goodness Svein, looks like Winter is still keeping you in its grip.. Thankfully here in the UK we have a better week, seeing the Sun at last..
    Amazing pictures my friend 🙂

      Due to the maps we see on a daily basis where the producer of such maps place each country squarely in the middle of a page, thus we seem to be loosing all feelings how the location stands up to the surrounding areas/countries. Looking at a large scale map we are pretty far North compared to most of the UK, you know?!

  3. Just a little snow then…… in our part of the UK we still haven’t had any, just gales and heavy rain this week to dampen our spirits (though Brexit debates already do that!) 🙂

    • Seenorway says:

      A lot of noise with absolutely no result!
      From the outside:
      What did that ‘Speaker og the House’ have for breakfast?! 🙂

      • Tough trying to control a large pack of delinquents….. Very sad situation

          And very different to what we usually observe from our Scandinavian capitals, but then you’re not alone in this ‘strange club of governments’. From other parts of the world we observe delegates throwing shoes at each other, even starting a fist fight for all delegates to watch. It’s really getting to be a strange world around us . . . 🙂

    Lovely snow pictures specially with the blue sky! Your skies at night are also fascinating!

    • Seenorway says:

      Thank you, but it wasn’t really ‘night’ – just yet. From the sun decends down under the horizon it’s still kind of lilac light for another hour before it becomes substantially darker,
      but the exiting news is that my phone camera seems to handle that hour and more with ease, and that opens a few new possibilities to me! 🙂

    Snow looks so beautiful.

    Har du ikke skaffet deg en snøfreser? Med en slik en blir snøryddingen en del lettere! ❤

    • Seenorway says:

      Men hei på deg, Astrid!
      Ja, nei, jeg trenger ikke denslags. Har en snill nabo som gir meg en hjelpende hånd – med freser -, men – denne gang var det så mye snå og så tung og våt at selv freseren ga opp!
      Isteden pakket snøen seg i maskinen etter bare 5 minutter. Og så ble det et enormt pirkearbeid å få renset opp – før det stoppet seg til omtrent like fort!
      Dermed mått jeg til med min noe aldrende fysikk og hive sammen denne haugen på en måte som gjorde det mulig å rygge inn i garasjen! Puh! Men nå venter jeg bare på sol, vår, og kanskje litt mildt april-regn! Hvordan går det med deg ellers ?

      • Astrid Hoff says:

        Det at snøen var tung kan bekreftes herfra også. Min kjære ektefelle tar på seg jobben på heroisk vis, og sier at jeg skal holde meg til huslige sysler innomhus! Men! Han klaget høylytt etterpå og videre i dag over hvor sliten han er etter den store anstrengelsen!
        Vi har det sånn omtrent som tidligere. Vi ble gift for snart tre år siden og har flyttet permanent til Asker, noe jeg er veldig takknemlig for. Asker er en god kommune å bo i! Jeg har bitt uføretrygdet og fokuserer på hjem og familie mest, og tar mye familiefotografering. Det gir meg mye glede! 🙂 Til høsten blir jeg bestemor igjen til barnebarn nr 6! 😀
        Våren.. ja, den håper vi også vil komme snart!

    And definitely not at my age! 🙂

    Wow! Beautiful but, c’mon – 8 ft is a lot of snow! Reminds me of when I lived in NJ during the blizzard of 1996. We had snow to the top of our front door. We lived in an apartment so someone else had to plow and shovel it.

    Beautiful snow & sky photos. The massive pile of snow reminds me of Maine (USA) winters when I was a kid. Fun for us, but not for the adults! 📚🎶 Christine
