The fall weather this year was pretty seemed much warmer than last fall.  Thank goodness!

It's only November, you say?  So, why did I use the past-tense verb "was" when describing fall?  Shouldn't fall still be happening in November?!  

Nope.  Not here, at least.  The freezing temps have come out to play, the trees are now naked, and a thick, gray layer of clouds has settled over Oslo.  But, so far it's still better than last year.

Anyhow, here's a farewell to the gorgeous bit of fall we got this year...

Thanks to Silje & Pierre, we spent a weekend in a cabin at beautiful Hafjell, near Lillehammer.  I forgot the memory card for my camera, so the pics were limited.  Regardless, we spent the weekend with an excellent group of friends - thanks to the Strobe o'Clock crew for an amazing time! 
We stopped in Lillehammer on the way home, to visit the site of the 1994 Winter Olympics.  It was a teeny town, but quite pretty.

Olympic remnants.


Excellent mural.

A slew of fall photos around Oslo...

And the Moment of Zen: The amazingly ridiculous dance party we managed to get going at a cabin in the middle of nowhere.  I'm sure there are embarrassing pics somewhere out there, but trust don't want to see them.
