Norwegians are used to battling the forces of nature. Especially in the north – 6 feet of snow is an everyday occurrence in winter and is certainly no reason to shut down the city. Norwegians have a saying: There is no bad weather, only bad clothing!

At my university, student parking spaces can be crowded at times. It gets worse in winter, when some of the spots are occupied by huge mounds of snow from the past night’s snowfall. Some students admit defeat, leave the car at home and simply ski to school! Others, like in this picture I snapped with my phone, don’t seem to let a snow pile stop them from getting their favourite spot. I guess having a 4 wheel drive pays off sometimes!

Nice parking job!
