Super pictures, but I am surprised that only half a metre of snow in night is a record in Iceland's capital. What do reckon is the record in your part of the world Catriona?
Oh, probably about an inch! If we are lucky, that is!
Apparently it doesn't really snow heavily in Reykjavic. It's mainly north of there that gets the snow.
My experience of snow in Iceland is that mostly travels horizontally!
Nope, Reykjavík is usualy light on snow, windy and wet is more their style.
Yep been there a few times in winter and only seen light snow and slush. Enough to make the road in from Keflavik very tricky though.
Remember that you are only a few hundred miles farther north than Scotland and surrounded by sea. Quite a bit farther south than the north of Norway or Canada. Deep snow is equally rare in Orkney, Shetland and the north coast of the Scottish mainland.
Indeed, I have been there in more often than I care to rember... North and East, that is where you want to be in Iceland.
So half a metre in Reykjavic upsets transport as much as half an inch in the home counties.
