Winter has truly arrived to Iceland. It started gradually this year and with a bang last Friday when very unusual weather was in Reykjavik: no wind and and constant snowfall and the ground was covered with 20 cm even snow in the morning when everybody woke up. But they managed to clear the streets and paths in time and I went bicycling to work as usual .When we woke up on Saturday morning there was 20 cm snow covering the ground and every surface again. Both days I took my shovel out and cleared my parking space and walking space to the house. It would be very embarrassing to get stuck in the snow on one's own steps. Better be stuck with the car somewhere else or fall riding the bike and have somebody else to blame!! :)
I have had around 25 red winged thrushes, 5 black birds and 30 starlings in the garden as dinner guests on my bird feeding platforms.
Vetur er sannarlega genginn í garð. Ég er búin að moka bílastæðið og stéttina heim að húsi tvisvar. Það væri sérlega neyðarlegt að festa bílinn á eigin stæði eða detta á hjólinu þar. Betra að festa sig og detta annars staðar og geta kennt öðrum um !! :)
Ég er með um 25 skógarþresti, 5 svartþresti og 30 stara í mat á fóðurbrettunum mínum alla daga. Jarðbönn eru alls staðar.
