Snow, new job, no flying

The last 24 hours (Sunday 1200 – Monday 1200) we had 41 cm of snow here in Bærum. I had to shovel snow late yesterday evening, just to do one more round this morning starting at 0615 to get my car out and ready to drive. It had been 70 years since a similar snow fall around here. Video from the local newspaper HERE (in Norwegian, but nice visuals as well).

Today I also started in new job at Sykehuset Buskerud HF (Buskerud Hospial Trust) as project manager. The hospital is a 32 km drive away in Drammen, and I feared that the drive would be bad in these conditions, but the roads were more or less cleared from snow and it was no problems. The job seems very interesting and I can not wait to start working on the projects – I guess the first week will be used for start up activites and to get familiar with the organisation, routines, and so on.

The snow was forecasted to arrive a little earlier than Sunday evening, but the entire weekend nevertheless had bad weather with some snow, wind, and fog. So no flying this weekend, and unfortunately the longterm forecast is not promising. This is typical for Norway in December and January.
