We`ve aready had quite a few snowstorms during the last weeks. That made us appreciate a single day with sunshine and blue skies even more.

At the warehouse, there was a lot of activity, since the second and last supply ship had arrived that morning.

I`ve never been on my skis as early as in the beginning of october. I love to ski through fresh fallen snow.

Our puppies were enjoying to play in the snow. A gorgeous day was coming to an end, and another blizzard waiting just around the corner.

    • Glad to hear that! It`s quite unusual with that much snow, that early. In autumn, there used to be more calm, dry, clear, cold weather. This year there are lots of storms and precipitation. Actually, it began to rain during the last storm, yesterday, so the snow is more wet now then last week… We are hoping there`s more stable weather to come soon!

  1. Great pictures Ruth. What an amazing place to live. We don’t have snow here yet, but it is coming soon. Tell me more about your dogs. What are their names? Are they all sled dogs or are some just pets?

  2. Hi Ruth, my name is Charley Fiedeldij Dop, Im a Dutch journalist, writing an article about foreigners living in Greenland and would love to get into touch with you. Could you send me an email? It’s: c.fiedeldij.dop@vpro.nl. Thanks in advance! Kind regards, Charley
