April 19th, 2018

...or at least a lot of snow has melted the last two weeks since the last tiem I took such pictures.

Flood and ski

April 19th, 2018

When walking from the bus yesterday I had wade in order to get home. Luckily it was like this just for a couple of hours.

I have also thought that the skiing season was finally over, but I was wrong. #1 was out skiing - highly influenced by all the Candide Thovex-videos he has seen on Youtube

Firewood 2018 - Getting it home

April 18th, 2018

Last Sunday I spent a couple of hours driving the firewood home after having cleared the edge of the field together with my neighbour Thomas. Spring is here, so the roads are all cleared from snow, so I could unmount the snowchains of the tractor.

But, without chains I was unable to get uphill in order to turn the tractor downhill and load the wood. So I needed help from Thomas and his John Deere.

And talking about John Deere, apparanlty the deers have had a party

All done, now head home

Weather pictures - snowballs

April 6th, 2018

Woke up this morning and all was white yet again.

The funny thing, which I did not notice until heading for the kinder garten was all the snowballs out on the field.

The snow must have been just a little bit moist and the wind strong enough to make all the balls

I guess it comes with age, documenting weather conditions, but since I use the blog as some kind of diary I do enjoy looking back on how much snow did we have that year at this time and such. So here goes, pictures taken when waiting for the bus this morning.

Oh the joy when this happens

An everyday pleasure, perfect timing when selecting which door to enter the train at Oslo S when it stops this close to the stairs at Lillestrøm.

Running on snow #2

April 2nd, 2018

The last week has been extraordinary, last Sunday the weather was really warm, but then it immediately got really cold - making the snow really hard and crusty, which again made it possible to easily run places I have not been running before.

Even found this oasis

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

March 27th, 2018

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
