Snow
PostPosted: Tue 28 Feb, 2006  Reply with quote

So, what does everyone think about snow? Today has been one of the worst snow days in eastern Norway in a very long time. We've had something like 40cm of snow in half a day,and the weather forecasts says that there is more to come. Cars, buses, trains, planes, everything is either late, stuck, or cancelled. Traffic into and out of the capital Oslo has been completely stuck. In some areas, the police have even told people to stay indoors unless it's absolutely necessary to go outside.You'd think a winter country like Norway was well prepared for such days, but it certainly doesn't seem like it. tounge2

I was going to my dad's place today, and we had to work for like half an hour just to get the car up a little hill and into the garage. Then when we got up to the house, the door was completely snowed in, so we had to dig it out. When we were leaving again this evening, we couldn't get the door open, so we had to go out the other way and dig it out again.

Even my chemistry teacher was 45 minutes late today, and he is usually quite punctual. Unfortunately, we don't get snow days in Norway, we have to trek to school no matter what. sadblauw

I have never seen snow in my whole life. I tried dreaming about snow, that was cool. But still—haven't ever seen or felt real snow.

Funny, huh? ^^

I love snow!! Especially the really powdery stuff, and the snowman making snow! droom

But there are days where I could do without the snow.

For example last week, there was a really big blizzard. And then the snow turned into freezing rain. Everything was covered in ice (I had to punch the ice off of the lock on my door to get back inside).

Of course all the schools got cancelled except for mine. I probably wouldn't have gone if it wasn't for my spanish exam that I had to write that morning!

So I started making my way to school, I found out the bus was delayed for an hour! I had no other way to get to class on time.

Blah Blah blah (several more incidents later, all snow reIated) and eventually I arrive at my exam 40 minutes late and get 20 minutes to write it. eek2

Hehe we had an exchange student from Brazil in our class last year, he had a pretty rough winter, especially the week the temperature dropped to like minus 20-25 celsius. tounge2

Well, we have snow here in Sweden too ^^
Yesterday, there was almost no snow left but then it snowed all day tounge2

I remember that in november 1995 I think it snowed so much about or more than 50 cm I think so that the schools closed.

But I like snow especially when it's "kramsnö"=(hug-snow)
"kramsnö" is the type of snow you can form into snowballs.

We've continued getting heavy snow today, we're coming up on about 1 meter in total now I think, and the forecasts calls for at least another 50cm or so through the rest of the week.

This is definately the most snow I've ever seen in my entire life, and it's all come down in about 36 hours! eek2 In some areas police have rescued people from their cars stuck in the snow, and cars have been gridlocked so long that they've run out of gas. According to the internet edition of VG, Norway's largest newspaper, Oslo is also getting it's worst snowfall in almost 40 years.

For the first time I can ever remember, some schools in the area have asked the youngest children to stay at home today, out of concern for their safety.

I'll see if I can get some pictures later.

I love snow too. We've not seen much here in Detroit for a long time, though this winter started out looking promising.

Being half Finn, I guess it's in my blood. I am not comfortable when it is hot or humid, and I have trouble sleeping. Give me cold and snow and I feel GOOD.

If I had a way to earn a living in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, I'd be up as far as you can go up there - up in the "rabbit's ear." They have good winters up there. The saying goes that there's only a few months of bad skiing up in the Copper Country.

You just reminded me of a lost dream in asking about snow! On my way to the JD to get it recorded.

I love snow. I love snow, rain, hail, blizzards... you name it, anything wild and/or cold! I love skiing and iceskating (and now Kiri too...!! tounge2 ). The only problem is, we don't get snow where I live, EVER.

Thinking of going to Japan next year, though, so perhaps I'll have an opportunity then.

I love the snow, but I don't like it when it get's too cold. This week has been very cold thumbs down
It also hasn't snowed in a week or so, but we've had a lot of snow this year to begin with so that's alright. I'll take some pictures for you guys if you like yes

Ya, I guess its in my blood too. I'm mostly, Norwegian, Swedish, English, Irish, Scotish, and Native American. Save for the last one, all of those are pretty cold places (atleast compared to where I live now, NJ). I think I'm also Greek, Gremen, Danish, and possibly French. My friend started calling me Europe in a blender

Here in Lebanon it snows all winter on the mountains, but very very very rarely on the cost. Last time it snowed on the coast in my hometown was like 15 years ago. This year it did snow in Beirut. Although i go there to univ, on that very day, i was not in beirut sadblauw how disappointing...
It has been some years since i last saw snow, coz i havent been going to the mountains... snow is beautiful... i dont care if people complain about it tounge2 it's beautiful!!
