January 10, 2007

Winter Wonder Land This is what a Winter in the Hills in Oslo should look like. Just behind the Communication Towers, it's an alpine ski centre with several lifts and pistes. And you'll also find 100 miles of cross country tracks, some of them lightend during afternoon and night. And it's all inside the Capital of Norway, Oslo. Just take the Metro from downtown and you are there in minutes. 550 (ca 1800 feet) meters above Sea Level.

The picture is a digital scancopy from and old slide (1982)

I love the photo! Now I'm assuming you have no snow right now? That's the height of our local ski hill. Well actually we have 3 local hills.

And we have tons of snow here but you already know that..

What were you running when you viewed my page last? Does it still look crazy? If so I've gotta figure it out what's wrong...

It's been a funnoy old winter - we had one bit of snowfall and now nothing..and it's even quite warm. I don't need the heating on most days.

It's quite worrying actually.

AHA! I see you're putting your scanner to use, Tor. What a nice gift for you AND us because we can now see your past pics.

Yes, it's so sad for people all over the northern hemisphere who are NOT getting winter. It IS worrying, as Wendz said. Plants are popping up, thinking it's Spring, but will die soon, assuming colder, freezing temps will come. What a crazy winter!

Yes, actually that was more what it looked like when we were in Norway in the beginning of 2004. Brrrrr!

Yes, It's finally winter and everything lightens up.
If it only could last this time.

Today I scanned 250 old slides. I'm not satiesfied with the results. Have to do it up again and adjust the settings a bit (and clean some of the glasscovers).
