If you live a little higher up in Oslo you probably awoke this morning and thought “oh no, not today”
Opening my curtains today I was greeted by five to ten centimetres of new snow. Whilst there had been a few weather warnings that more snow might come today, I think most of us brushed it aside in the belief that winter was over.
After all on Saturday I was sat in a t-shirt and shorts enjoying an ice cream down by the fjord, having slathered on factor 50!
After having to legally change my spiked tyres two weeks ago to summer tyres, I was very happy that I have off-road all terrain tyres on my truck.
This relief was only reinforced when I saw that they had not cleared a good amount of the roads up to the woods and there was a line of buses parked up and waiting.
One rule of thinking is “be prepared”. However a more important way of thinking is “expect the unexpected”.
Not only will this keep you on your toes but it will mean that you approach the unexpected with a sense of adventure.
I can report back at your dogs were super super happy to see the return of the snow.
The energy levels were off the charts as we started our walks.
And by the end of the walks we were having to lift tired and happy dogs back into vans that they normally can leap into unassisted.
So whilst you might have started the day with “oh no” we turned that into an “oh yes” for your doggies.
Little funny side note.
When picking up one dog I saw the parents of one of my owners who were down from Tromsø to look after the grandkids. I asked them if they had brought the weather with them and whether they were happy.
The answer was typical of North Norwegian humour: “it is fantastic, we are off to buy a cake to celebrate”
