    Yes Ombugge, I remember you told that in a post. It's the reason why I made the picture ...and introduced you to my wife.

    Very interresting. As for me, I would prefer the last version without the City Hall!

    We changed from -10 to +16°C during the weekend. Seems to be that the winter is over now in our area.

    We got snow overnight. At least 1-2 mm. of the white stuff:

    But it all melted when the sun got hold.

    Thanks Oistein. I was waiting to ask my son who I knew had carried his bike up there, just to ride it down again.
    PS> I was of the impression that you would need a tractor to get anything heavy up there.
