Weather obsession

People in Norway are obsessed about the weather. After seven weeks in Oslo I remember why. With weather this unpredictable, no wonder people are anxiously awaiting the next sunny day! We had some nice weather in early June but since then it has been rather bleak, with lots and lots of rain. Last week it was so windy I could hardly walk upright!

So the newspapers are full of weathertalk, and trips to southern Europe or other warm destinations are selling like crazy. I would personally like to have a day that was sunny and warm all the way through... We went swimming yesterday but it was very chilly - and that is here in Oslo, where the weather is warmer than anywhere else in the country, really... Tomorrow we head to Tromsø and then to Lofoten so I am not expecting anything about 15 C there. Time to get out all the winter gear!!
