Spring, marvellous spring
The winter in Norway has been long, cold, icy and dark. Driving through blizzard to and from my Mom has required the skill of an experienced and devoted driver and a four wheel drive. Our Gunnar.
Now we have passed spring equinox, the snowdrops, daffodils and hyacinths are blooming, no red so far, and the sun is shining 13 hours a day.
Time to wash the salt of the car and change the studded winter tires with lighter summer wheels. Most people wait till after Easter with the great car cleaning. Norwegians are weird, you see. Just as flowers, birds and green grass are pooping out from their safe winter hide away, people drag out tons of skiing equipment and drive on flocks up to the mountains.
I wouldn't change my life in the lowlands for a million bucks.
Life is good after all.
