We've had a dream Easter here in the north of Norway! In Norway Easter is all about being outdoors skiing or hiking. So how great the weather have been is crucial on how great the Easter have been ;) So we can't complain! The temperatures have been over 10 C some days, and the snow is melting fast. But with very low temperatures by night (down to -14 C some nights) the snow have been quite hard to walk on.
I even brought my knitting with me in the forest the other day. It's a sock if you wondered ;)
Due to the hard snow, the sledding conditions have been perfect! And the steeper hills the better. You can see more pictures in our hiking blog :)
And I really hope spring is here to stay now. We already have the mud and have seen a couple of butterflies :) But I guess we still have some snow coming during Pentecost. It's called "Pinseria" - it's a cold weather period that usually comes around Pentecost. And we also have "Reinkalvria". From old times it's the time when the reindeers give birth to their calves. I guess the snow is helping the calves to become strong and healty.
