That Time of the Year

Da har vi fått årets første snøfall her oppe i nord! Heldigvis ikke så veldig mye i første omgang, men nok til at det ble tilløp til kaos i veinettet. Det er alltid noen
som ikke helt har fått med seg at det er på tide å skifte til vinterdekk, og da kanskje i særlig grad trailersjåfører fra kontinentet som ‘bare’ skulle rekke en eneste leveranse til før de skiftet. Det skjer hvert eneste år til tross for at vi har hatt snøfall
hvert eneste år opp gjennom alle tider!
Og så forsvinner snart den siste rest av høstfarger, men ennå er det noen gjenstridige busker som ikke helt har gitt opp håpet . . .
.
Then finally the first snowfall has arrived here up North! Fortunately not a whole lot of snow – only a few inches, but enough to create a total chaos out on the roads.
There is always somebody that seems to have forgotten all about snowtyres, and perhaps mostly trailer drivers arriving from the continent to deliver only that last load before winter. It happens every year, even if we have had the snow every winter as through all times!
And the absolute last remains of fall colors will disappear, but still there are a few stubborn shrubs that refuses to let go . . .

    Snow looks so pretty.

    That is the thing Svein, people here always forget that Autumn throws leaves down and train lines seem to be full of it so trains can’t run. What a surprise … every year!

      Most people are pretty busy doing their daily chores and are hoping that there will be a day tomorrow for changing tyres and such, but – as it turns out for most of us:
      The next day is just as busy and then some . . . 🙂

  5. Well it’s that time of year….. And just to make you even more grumpy Santa Clause is getting ready 🎅😊

    It’s beautiful to look at, Svein. Is this an early snow?

    • Seenorway says:

      Most definitely! It was snowing most of yesterday and through the night as well, only very sparsely – so in the morning we had received approximately 2 – 2,5 inches!
      But – there will most certainly be more – only not today and may be not tomorrow either, but the winter is here!

      • -Eugenia says:

        It seems winter arriver early in Canada and the NW US, as well.

        • Seenorway says:

          And I’m a bit puzzled as to the much on-spoken ‘global warming’ as we have just received reports from the Northern regions of Norway where the cold has come much earlier than ever and on the top of that – much colder than it has ever been!
          24 hours ago the region of Troms had temperatures from 36 – 38 degrees C BELOW ZERO! Well, they have had temperatures around 42-43 below zero in that region, but never i the month of November! Not ever!

          • -Eugenia says:

            I often wonder how much about the global warming hype is true. The planet has gone through extreme changes in the past and will continue to do so. We’re having cold weather here earlier than usual, as well. Stay warm! 😉

            • Seenorway says:

              Yes, it’s a fact that the Earth has been undergoing severe changes in the past. In fact, it does so all the time and on every level, but the problem is that every cycle is different.
              Like our seasons takes about a year but the shift of our magnetic poles may take 150 000 years, CO2-levels, glaciers, ocean levels, climate, ocean currents, they are all following a pattern of cycles, and at times even the cycles may change! I just read that there is a 12 percent chance that we might have a solar storm this year – the strongest in a 150 years!
              It may take out most of our sattelites of today along with GPS and air traffic control! (And what else?)
              And then it might not. Like a weather forecast it may all change totally for some reasons we don’t fully understand. .
              But – we have to face that even if these things are moving i cycles, some of these peaks may hurt us badly unless we are prepared. Heed the warnings! If it does not happen, consider yourself lucky! Focus at NSW in Australia these days, and perhaps especially for the next 2 days!!! We are indeed living on a ‘live planet’, and at times it may be dangerous!

  7. Oj så mycket snö du fått. Här snöar det nu men smälter när det når marken. Jag undrar hur det ser ut i morgon bitti.

    Sneen kom her også

    • Seenorway says:

      Ja, denne gang kom bygene inn Skagerrak og Oslofjorden, men jeg tror mesteparten av
      snøen havnet øst/nordøst av Oslo? Det ble med 5-6 cm her på våre kanter! Denne gang!
