Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow
Iceland is covered in snow these days. When residents in Reykjavík woke up this morning they had to dig their way out to their cars, sweep the ca 30 cm of snow from the top of their cars and finally shovel their way out to the street. Some of those who were out early, before municipal workers got their first attempt at clearing the streets, got stuck and had to be helped by the rescue team. Some of the cars which got stuck are in the way of snow plows, making it even more difficult to keep the streets clear.

Christmas Concerts and Free Music Events in Iceland An unconventional Christmas concert will take place at the Culture House in Reykjavík tomorrow where Muck, Sudden Weather Change and The Heavy Experience will play under the title “Kertasníkir kemur” (“Candle Beggar Comes”), referring to the last of the 13 Icelandic Yule Lads, who actually isn’t scheduled to come to town until December 24.
