Fire and Ice


It rained last night and this morning we read that a severe weather alert had been issued for our area warning that freezing temperatures following the rain would lead to patchy ice conditions. When we looked out at the deck we saw that and more. Apparently we also had sleet. The deck is covered in a thin layer of ice with thousands of tiny ice bumps imbedded in it. Looks like a severe case of white measles! So grateful for the ability to crank up the gas fireplace, make some hot chocolate, and just stay indoors this morning!

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
