Yesterday the temp raised to 1c which actually felt quite warm. Lots of the ice on the fjord is beginning to melt (sadly so are my ice lanterns!) As cold as its been so far I have not found the Norwegian winter to be quite as dark, cold and depressing as I'd imagined. That said, I am so looking forward to summer (Even when a Norwegian said to me recently, "Ah,yes, I remember last summer..... It was on July 23rd!") and not having to be wrapped up all the time and swimming at the beaches that we now have to wrap up to visit!
