Storm Gertrude (photo: snow and ice from window)
It’s interesting how countries give storms names…. in Norway this storm is called “Thor” – much more manly than Gertrude!
We cannot explain how frustrating it is just waiting for the weather to break.
The only salvation is that we are in a major mountain cabin rather than be stuck in a tent.
To get an idea of the magnitude of the storm, this weekend was going to be the main focus of winter activities at the cabin and 120 people were booked in – EVERYBODY has cancelled!
There’s just us and the staff.
The recent wind and snows have also pushed the avalanche warnings up to 4 (out of 5).
