I’m not sure I’m allowed to do this, but anyway here is a picture someone sent in to Dagbladet, an Oslo daily paper.  There’s an elk in their garden.  Apparently she had a calf with her, and she had plans to eat the hyacinths and find some warmth.  I hope the householders let them in, it doesn’t say.

It’s currently about -20 °C, or -5 °F. That’s jolly cold for us who live around Oslo.  There’s a cold snap all over Europe; in England it got so cold they had (gasp) snow. The leaders of British industry are taking a tough line; they’re NOT allowing their employees time off work.  They say they only want to make snowmen and slide down hills on tea-trays — and their workers aren’t any better.
