May


It's strange waking up on May 1st, getting ready to take my daughter to her confirmation ceremony at neighboring Hallgrímskirkja, and finding a soft, heavy blanket of snow covering the backyard. What's even odder is to hear that it only snowed in Reykjavik, and not even in many of the suburbs just miles away from the city center. This is quiet weather, though, and actually a kind break from the erratic winds and sleet we've been experiencing. In all, we are grateful that this is only a slight inconvenience, and look forward to a beautiful summer ahead!

The young man in the picture doesn't look like my idea of a typical Icelander, which leads to the question: is there any immigration to Iceland today and if so from where?

oh this isn't that strange, because, miles and miles below you, here in New York, it almost snowed!! and i checked the weather of reykjavik and new york, and they were the same! so yeah, it's even weirder here because last week it peaked to about 30 degrees!!so hot...and now? about 6...

Hi Zaret. Yes,it's like pocket weather! Sounds like it was waayyy more dramatic in NY though, which is usually the case. I've never been hotter, or colder, in my life than in Manhattan!
