It Is REALLY Windy In Norway
Nothing, I repeat, NOTHING will keep these Norwegians from Christmas shopping. Though, I don't think the wind has really sucked the Christmas spirit out of them. Pedestrians smile and laugh as if they've just stepped into an artificial wind tunnel at a theme park as they make futile attempts to cross the street. Some folks would get all cranky about it, but the merry shoppers of downtown Aalesundare all "HAHA, MARVELOUS STORM WE'RE HAVING! SHALL WE PURCHASE SWEET MEATS AND THISTLE? " I know nothing about this culture. Other than that it takes more than a few gale-force winds to turn their frowns right-side down.
