It has been rather cold in Iceland! Usually the November is the time when Icelanders start to get ready for winter. We get a glimpse of the winter cold and some snow but usually we get some milder days in between as well. Sort of to give everybody a warning: Winter is approaching... get ready! But not this year. By middle of November we were hit with a Siberian type of winter spell – no forewarnings – temperatures dropped accompanied with lots of snow. Even Reykjavík was hit with an unusual early snowy and winter spell – right in time for the lightning of the Christmas decorations downtown.
