Almost too much snow...

feeding the birds

There has been very little knitting around here the last days.... Because of the snow. It's been like WHOOF - and there it was, 1 meter of snow. So we've been shoveling every day. Making a footpath in the garden so we can feed the birds, shoveling the snow off our roofs and ofcourse the kids are thrilled. It's not every day they can sledge in our yard (on the hills of snow we have shoveld...). But I guess we just have to enjoy it as long as we have it, because the weather forcast for the weekend is rain...

reading in the dark

We've also been withour electricity the other night, so we had to read our books with head - and flashlights ;)

  1. Jeg er omtrent like begeistret som ungene over all snøen :) Gruer meg til regnet. Og strømbrudd er mest koselig synes jeg. For noen år siden gikk strømmen på nyttårsaften, da kokte vi pinnekjøtt på vedovnen og gassapparat, og spilte spill hele kvelden :)

  4. Litt snø har vi også, men nå regner det så det plasker! Strømbrudd synes jeg er koselig så lenge vi har ved :) Ser ut som om ungene har det fint ute...

  5. Oh my! That makes me feel cold just looking at it!


    I spoke to my grandmother yesterday and she's journeying back to Lillehammer from Ulvik this morning and wasn't really looking forward to the journey. I wouldn't want to be getting much further North than that at this time of the year, I'm not a snow fan!

  6. Det ser UNDERBART ut!! Men hoppas ni får tillbaka elektriciteten - det är kallt att sticka utan värme...

  7. No electricity can be fun for a little while as long as you're not cold. The reading looks fun too.

  8. Yes too much snow. We had a year like this and I got to the point that when I saw a flake I would start to cry.

  9. Wow, that much snow! We almost never have such an amount. But it is very cold at the moment here in The Netherlands.

  10. Oh My! That is a lot of snow. I am thinking now that Christmas is over all the snow needs to go away but I think we still have a few more months of it (we still had snow in April last year) *sigh* but I am sure winter is much more longer where you are.

    (I finally joined ravelry, I have found I can easily spend a lot of time there!)
