In my last post I promised, (or threatened, maybe), to post more winter stuff on my blog, so here it goes.
In February we visited our eldest daughter, who live more inland, close to the large glacier. We stayed the night, and woke up the next day to minus 22,5 degrees C outside, which was my personal coldest this winter.
Outside there was a clear, blue sky, and the fog, or “frost smoke” as we call it, was drifting down along the river . All the trees were covered in hoar frost.
After a while the sun peeked out above the mountain ridge…
… adding a pink colour to the frost smoke.
When the fog drifted away, the sky outside was blue, – very blue!
The frost made some trees look like huge snow balls.
Frost and snow also covered the playground where our grandchildren usually play….
… and even the spiderwebs on the outside wall.
They looked almost like lace curtains.
On seeing them, my husband commented drily: “Boy, those spiders have a lot of shovelling to do”.
