Meanwhile in Norway

Despite experiencing some exceptionally warm weather, winter preparations are now well on their way.

Brian spotted these on his way to work.*

Studded winter tyres

 

Nothing to see here, just a car on the motorway.

 


*Well technically not work yet, but next week it will be, once his adoption papers come through

    You are required to pay a fee for using studded tyres in Oslo and Bergen. Oddly, this is to improve air quality. From the Oslo kommune Samferdselsetaten website:

    “Studded tyres tear up the asphalt and generate airborne particles. These particles cause major health problems for many inhabitants, especially those who have allergies or asthma.”

    No, really. I am not making this up…

    Also Sing ho! for Brian (BRIAN) ho! for getting a job.
