Shock…Horror….it snowed here in Norway

Posted by weehaggis on Sunday, November 2, 2008

One morning last week woke up and there was about 6 inches of snow on the ground.  Wow, it had snowed here in Norway!!  Ok, it shouldn’t be such a surprise but given that the public transport system just ground to halt that morning you’d think it was the first time Norwegians had seen snow 🙂  And this seems to happen EVERY year.  Waking up in the morning after the first snow, Norwegains appear to behave as if they’ve never seen the stuff before – abandoned cars at the side of the road and no morning busses.  Then there were the trams in Oslo, suffering the double whammy of not only having the snow on the ground but also under the snow there were the “wrong type” of leaves on the tracks 🙂  Yes….they stopped working too.

    Good to see it’s not just the Brits who overreact to season changes. Do the Norwegian press also have an equivalent for “It’s snow joke”?

    On an unrelated note, how would you summarise living costs in Oslo (without swearing!)? I know alcohol and eating/drinking out are exceptionally expensive but roughly what would you multiply British living expenses/incomes by to get a ballpark Norwegian equivalent?

    Thanks in advance and for your entertaining posts.

    Just a wee note to encourage continued posting – I have enjoyed reading the blog the last couple of years (Scot married to a Norge)
