it’s beginning to look a lot like

 Winter!It snowed this afternoon over Oslo. It’s my very first snow and it’s amazing! It was more of a wet snow, not a silent snowfall where white, feathery ice falls from the skies.When I went out in the evening to go to the gym, I felt ice falling over me and sometimes getting into my eyes. I was walking on slippery ground, not the right shoes I say. The air blows extreme chills. My hands felt numb despite the gloves I’m wearing. Nonetheless, the feeling is nice. The feeling is wonderful. I wish my family could experience this, too. That would be a chill, er, thrill.

    Wow! First real winter! Enjoy! Don’t forget to take your flu shots or just keep warm always. :)

    that is nice. There is no snow yet in Bergen but I think there was a little sign to it last night.

    Remembered my first snowfall. I was grinning all the while playing in freezing temps while the natives stared at me in astonishment. :)

    Flu shots are expensive around here, I think. So i’ll just keep myself warm, Karen!

    Bergen is always warmer than Oslo, Charles! And that is nyddelig!

    That’s cute, Paul!

    That would be a disaster, Juon!

    Winter will come soon, Tita Mely! It’s unfortunate I wasn’t there in the family gathering, but I bought some flowers today, lit some candles, and prayed in remembrance. Thanks for dropping by!

    Great to hear about your first experience of snow Mark – and now it’s gone :-(
    But: there will be more and more and more and hopefully white Christmas in Norway you know. So get yourself some skis and ready for the great snow adventures!
