Several instances of property owners needing to dig tunnels to their front doors.
20 Feb 2018 – Heavy snowfall continues to set new records in the hills around Oslo and throughout Southern Norway.
Norway’s waterways and energy directorate NVE reported that there hasn’t been as much snow in the hills around Oslo since 1995, in some areas since the mid-1960s.
There’s been at least 80 cm (32 inches) at low elevations this winter and more than a meter at higher elevations, with the hills around suburban Bærum reporting around 120 cm (4 ft) of snow on the ground.
There’s also been lots of snow along the southern and western coasts as well as in the mountains and inland areas. State broadcaster NRK has featured several incidents of hytte (cabin) owners arriving at their properties to find them snowed in, with a need to dig tunnels to the front doors.
Engineering advisory association RIF (Rådgivende Ingeniørers Forening) warned that all those who haven’t removed snow from their rooftops must do so to prevent them from caving in.
