During the last week or so the weather here in Longyearbyen has been quite changing. It has been days with a bit of sun on the summits of the mountains, but also overcast and snowy days. The temperature has been around 0 degrees with occasional changes to -4 and +5. Now king winter seems to have taken over again, covering the longyearbyen area in a thin blanket of snow. Daylight is getting shorter by 40 min every day, so it is necessary to enjoy the little light we have left, before entering into almost 4 months of darkness...
When the weather is not too good we spend time going to the gym, the shooting range or stay at home putting up curtains and watching movies and making BBQ with friends ;0)
Last week we also bought a car. WHY? might you wonder, as there is only 45 km of roads in this town!
The answer is easy, "WHY NOT"! Well it is always good to be free to do what ever when ever, visiting friends in the other end of the valley without being worried about the weather, driving groceries home etc.
It is not a NEED to have but NICE to have a car ;0)
