As you can see, no snow in Oslo at present. The cold weather has however, made the lawn in the Royal Garden grey or some shade of white if you want snow to come. The low sun makes it difficult to see when driving your car, but that is no excuse for not strolling the city on Saturday.
The Royal castle balcony still has its Christmas tree, so the season celebration for the royal family has not yet been brought to an end. May be they still are up at Kongsseteren where the weather is not influenced by the cold fog near open water.
There is no open water in Spikersuppa in front of the Parliament where people can have fun at Narvisen.
The financial crises have not made a significant influence of the Sale Season, but bankruptcies have increased. The lingerie shop mentioned in my post from December 7th 2007 is no more in operation, and in Paleet we found this note in a window yesterday.
