Running on snow

March 28th, 2018

On Sunday the weather was really nice and warm, so the snow became wet. Then on Sunday evening and continuing it has been really cold, so today the snow was really hard, making it possible to walk on the field without breaking through the upper, crusty layer. So I had to try to run on it, and I brought #3 along. Using a back pack and a tow rope he joined me on his snow sledge. We had a lot of fun together and I got a really good workout as well.

Yo ho Ho And a Bottle of Rum

Spring is starting to show strength at Ørje, this picture from last Saturday. Apparantly fifteen men on a dead man's chest has been to Ørje earlier this winter, most likely during a day of heavy snow and then lost their bottle of rum. A bottle of Captain Morgan found by #3

Weekend at Norefjell

March 18th, 2018

Along with my colleagues from KLP we headed for Norefjell on Friday to spend the weekend there for leisure activites (and some work related). Anyhow, what a weekend, here the view from the top down towards Noresund

And this a rather crappy picture I must admit, my colleague Sindre checking his cell phone while my other colleague Anders taking a picture of me. But, way back in the distance, we saw Gaustadtoppen, almost 70km in the distance.

Sunday morning, about 20 minutes before the lifts opened I started walking the first one. So I was completly alone on the second lift, and got to be the first one going down, really made my day.

No one behind

Had a lot of fun with my new pair of skis. Head Shape 3.0, bought them because I needed a pair to use when skiing together with the kids. Not advanced in any way, but boy did I have a lot of fun with them, even offpiste was fun after a while when starting to feel comfortable with them.

A snowy day

March 13th, 2018

Got up at half past five, looked out the window and decided not to go out and plow snow. Then opened the door at half past six and concluded the same, but while heading out to catch the bus I decided that I needed to plow snow. So therefore I had to catch the next bus. Then when waiting for the bus, the snow plow passed

. A couple of hundred meters afterwards, the plow met a truck from abroad. He was a bit scared, so he stopped and turned on the hazard lights.

A hot tip - drive in the middle of the road

And in the evening I had to rescue my neighbour and his MF 135

Better take some pictures in order to remember this winter. If not totally mistaken, it has now been this amount of snow since 1994.
