Snow in Norway

This is more what Norway should look like. At least in my mind. I took all these pictures on my way to class the morning after it snowed, Oct. 22nd.

This is my school.

  1. How beautiful! Do they get MAJOR DRIFTS like in WI? Snow looks so cool, but is usually just a pain unless you are a kid with a snow day off! Is going to be in the 70's tomorrow in WI - probably the last time this year!
    I was sitting in a dentist office for 4 hours waiting for Carl a week or so ago - while you were in Oslo - reading about Oslo in 'Dwell' magazine ( Great article and pics of Oslo - loved the new Opera House - looked like a glacier with ski slopes down to the water! Didn't realize they had a King - Harald V? Did you see the Royal Palace - at Henrik Ibsens Gate 1? And what's with the 'gates'? i.e. the pool and fountains of Eidsvoll Square at Stortingsgata & Rosentrantz Gate; the "greenward" that runs parallel to Oslo's Grand Boulevard Karl Johans Gate - between Slottsparken & Fred Olsens Gate; etc.! Anything sound familiar?! It talked of the museums with 'impeccably preserved' Viking ships - thanks for the pic of that! Was glad you were able to explore the sites! Glad I found the article - very interesting! Enjoy the snow :)
